Item:123764152112RARE SIGNED PAIR 4" x 4" HINGES: GREENWOOD, CINCINNATI CIRCA 1858 (12137) Wonderful matched pair of Miles Greenwood hinges, 4" high X 4" wide, heavy iron hinges, circa 1850-1860. Greenwood had an early foundry in Cincinnati (The Eagle Iron Works) and made the pontoon anchors for the boats used by the John Fremont Expedition in the early 1800's. Eagle Iron Works and foundry was also involved in the castings of the cannons used by General Grant's western armies during the Civil War. He was the premier hinge manufacturer on the Western Frontier along the Ohio River in the early and mid 1800's. Old homes and barns in this area built before the Civil War are often found with Greenwood hinges. It is also probable that Greenwood made and hinges for hardware dealers J.L. Haven of Cincinnati and A. Gardner of Cincinnati and private labeled them by imprinting their names in the castings. We have bead blasted this pair and the Greenwood signature is readily visible.
