Greater than 180 degree hinge

I have face frame cabinets with 1 1/4 inch overlay doors. I have one cabinet which I'm hoping to allow the door to open between 180 and 270 degrees. Is there any solution out there for this situation?

Rockler has 270 degree hinges. They are expensive at about $30 per pair.

There are problems with the 270 degree hinges that @Tom-G recommended. They will not work for @baileymwmw.

They are designed to work with frameless cabinets, mounting to the inside of the cabinet. baileymwmw has a face frame cabinet with 1-1/4 inch overlays. Here are links to the expensive hinges that Tom-G mentioned, and also less expensive hinges with the same issue:
Not Recommended: https://www.rockler.com/aximat-hinge...0-degree-swing ($30)
Not Recommended: https://www.rockler.com/270deg-overlay-hinge ($10)

Based on the description, it appears that baileymwmw is using euro style hinges. I have not seen anything in euro hinges that swings wider than 170 degrees. I doubt it exists, because the hinge would have to swing the door across the overlay area and beyond it, and nobody knows for sure how much more cabinet is beyond the overlay area to swing around. Sure, you can make educated guesses to target common uses, but I wonder if there is enough demand to justify making it.

I think baileymwmw will have to choose between a common 170 degree euro style hinge, or modify the door and frame to accommodate a true 270 degree hinge.

Hopefully others will join in to suggest alternative solutions.

Thanks for the clarification. I remembered seeing those hinges but didn’t think through the application.

Thanks for the info. I was pretty sure I knew the answer already but I can dream, can't I?
