Announcement    NOTICE: We are moving the studio so we are setting shipping at 1-2 weeks. We will ship ASAP when we are between locations. :)
PLEASE READ HERE ABOUT "FREE" SHIPPING!!

Why no 'free' shipping? I *could* build the price of the shipping into the item cost to make it look 'free' like Etsy suggests. But that's lying to customers, and I'm not doing that. Additionally, you'll be paying more in taxes on an artificially inflated price (and my Etsy fees also substantially increase), and with the switch to distance-based and dimensional postage costs by the USPS, you'd be paying higher costs to subsidize buyers in more distant areas. I don't want to do that to you, and I don't think you want that either.

About DrGsBrass

Sales 531
On Etsy since 2017

Welcome to Dr. G's Brasshole!

Dr. G’s Brasshole specializes in hard-to-find and uncommon miniature period hinges and hardware. Featuring original designs as well as historic/antique scale reproductions in 1:12 scale, hardware styles include Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts, Eastlake, ‘Classic Colonial’, and others. All Dr. G’s Brasshole hinges are made by us, right here in the USA. By artists, for artists.

Designed for the scale miniaturist, our brass hinges are etched, hand folded, polished, and finished. Each pair of hinges is crafted from at least 8 mil brass (unless otherwise noted) for sturdiness and stability. Fasteners are included with each pair of hinges and are not lacquered. Most pieces are offered in a bright brass and a blackened finish, and we are busy working to perfect additional custom finishes/patinas. An extra fee applies for finishes other than bright brass - please check in our Etsy shop for prices and availability (look for the drop-down button to choose between finishes).

We have taken extra efforts to maintain our commitment to scale-accurate products. Exclusively available from Dr. G’s Brasshole, our fasteners, screws, and bail posts are custom-made for us and are exactly in scale with our hinges and hardware. Precisely machined for a consistent size, our fasteners, screws, and bail posts look great when installed on 1:12 furniture because they are the correct size and are uniform part-to-part.

Browse and purchase through our Etsy store, or drop us an email for special purchase or custom hardware enquiries.

What about "free" shipping?

Why no 'free' shipping? I *could* build the price of the shipping into the item cost to make it look 'free' like Etsy suggests. But that's lying to customers, and I'm not doing that. Additionally, you'll be paying more in taxes on an artificially inflated price (and my Etsy fees also substantially increase), and with the recent switch to distance-based postage costs by the USPS, you'd be paying higher costs to accommodate buyers in more distant areas. I don't want to do that to you, and I don't think you want it either.
