I chose these hinges for the double gate of a white picket fence in front of a 175 year old house. The hinges are heavy, well built, and should last a long time. My only complaint was that the oil blackened finish is quite messy.
The hinges have a great historical look to them and are nice quality. I can't understand why Van Dykes has them on clearence as I can't seem to find them elsewhere and may need additional pairs in the future.
