China cabinet hinge

Hello all,

During COVID, I have refinished all my dining room furniture. It is the project that will never end, because I want to change the brass hinges to something in the silver family, and am stumped at how to replace this hinge! (Painting with metallic paint did not work, so I would like to find replacement hinges.)

Can someone just tell me how to describe it, or how to find one?

The hinge measures 2", and I believe would be called a 5/8" offset, however, there is another space that accommodates the thickness of the door that measures 3/8". Please see the picture.

Thank you very much!!

Deidre

welcome to the forum, Deidre ~ what part of the country are you in ?

is the china cabinet back together now ? or still apart for the refinishing.
a photo or two of the hinge in actual use so we can see how it is used may help.

Edit: if it was in your budget, and you really wanted a silver finish, on the orginal hinges,
you could find a metal plater in your area and have them nickel plated.

.

there is no educational alternative to having a front row seat in the School of Hard Knocks.

Unusual hinge to try to replace. I think I would be inclined to go back to paint. It would help to determine if the hinge is solid brass or brass plated. You might stick a magnet on it to see if there is steel underneath. It would paint better if the brass was sanded or sandblasted off. If it is brass first strip the paint off and roughen the metal with some fine sandpaper. Then prime it with a self etching primer and paint. It should do better. Still you have to baby the paint for a month until it hardens completely.

Appears to be whatís called a non-mortise hinge. The issue is going on be the offset. 5/8 is a little odd.

If you can use a 3/4 offset hinge youíre in business.

Take a look at hingeoutlet.com.

Here is the hinge in use.

I am in NC.

I guess I could try painting again.

poke the screws into a piece of cardboard and paint them
the same time you paint the hinges.
(put the screws in a small bottle of acetone and shake well
to remove any contaminates).
