I have a bathroom medicine cabinet with three doors. One of the hinges broke and I can’t find this type of hinge anywhere in store or online. It’s a frameless european type hinge, but here is the twist: the mount holes for the cabinet are turned 90 degrees from the mount for the door. This allows the hinge to be screwed to the bottom and top of the inside of the cabinet instead of the side like normal. Any idea where I could find these type of hinges, or a specific same to help with my search. Thanks for any help

Is there any kind of name stamped inside or on the back of the hinge cup.
Normally there’s something stamped on it.

Thanks for the reply, I forgot to mention that. The only thing stamped on the hinge is the number 4C6a. These numbers added to european hinge didn’t help in a web search to find a replacement.

You might try contacting a cabinet hardware dealer. A good one should be able to tell you about pretty much any hinge type. I do business with https://www.woodworkerexpress.com but there are lots of others.
