Voysey Hinges

2013 ended well with an interesting commission from a client who had a remarkable collection of Arts and Crafts furniture and artifacts. A beautiful wardrobe had been made by a cabinet maker which required some elaborate bronze hinges in the style of CM Voysey. Mr Voysey was well known for using hearts and birds as ornament and these hinges are no exception

Bronze was the material of choice, and it took many hours to give the four hinges the required look. The details were all hand cut with a piercing saw and the body forged to shape including the hinge eyes and plates. They are approx. 18" long and shown here before dark brown patination had been applied.
