Trying to figure out what these would go to. They are nickel plated brass. 4.75" long. Slightly offset. They have small protusions sticking out on the one end. I guess that end is made to sink into wood? So heavy duty cabinet hinges maybe? I can find plenty that look like this online, but they are all flat backed with no tits sticking out.

Back of the more decorative half has lugs and plugged in to the base object. Must have held a very heavy lid or door. Also looks like the hinge pin would stick out quite a bit if it were a right angle attachment and there is no room for an overlap of parts. Vertical cold/freezer storage, door setting inside the cabinet opening?

DCMatt nailed it or in this case 'ice boxed it'. :laughing7:
Nice find, almost makes you want to construct a document box from oak to put the hinges on.

Thanks Matt and everyone else.
I figured they were ice box hinges but still haven't found a pair with the back protrusions thst inset when screwed in all the way. All flat backs. That's what had me wondering. I'll put this one to rest. Thanks again.
