    Default Which hinges for 1930's internal lead light doors?

    Got a 1930's California Bungalow in Perth ... renovating over the years. I have now come to the old lounge, I found in the shed the old leadlight doors. I want to rehang them but don't know the type of hinge / pivot that was used.

    They pivot from the top of the door frame and floor (not std hinges), this I believe allowed them to swing both in and out of the room. There is a pin still in the top of the frame, the bottom if the door has a rebate in it about 30mm high and 200mm long.

    Any idea what these hinges are so I can source some nice new ones ... or find them at a salvage yard?

    ta, WW

    Do you have photos of the bits of the door where these were originally attached? Lucky find to discover then in the shed!

    I see there are four states with an Inglewood. Wanna narrow it down a bit?

    On reflection, I see you have already said you are in Perth. Sorry. Have been commuting to Hobart all week and three hours in the car a day does tend to make my brain go to mush.

    You have a heritage office over there (State Government) who will have various published lists including suppliers of hardware and door furniture. Also your local council wil have a heritage adviser who will be able to set you straight regarding restoring the doors as well. These are probably your best bet for directions for local suppliers (WA is outside my range of experience ...)
