It's like a work of art! That's a very cool find!
Great detail; I like the perspective you chose, too.
When I first glanced at it, I thought it was patterned, then I realized that was writing. I agree, lovely hinge, and a lovely picture of it.BTW: It's all your "fault" my blog is filled with Daily Shoot pictures, since it was right here that I first read about it! :)
