Ah, but your description above does not correspond at all to the picture you link us to!
That is indeed a form of 'pintle hinge'

Ah yes, your description of "running the full length of the door" was misleading; in that case, this obviously could not be correct.

Asker: Thank you for your answer, but no, it's not a piano hinge. Further research (and help from another forum) suggests that these 'fiches à lacet' are very specific to France (Europe?) and may be referred to as 'armoire hinges' or 'fiche hinges', although I'm not sure I've pinned down exactly the right term yet. Here is a picture showing the hinge in question on an item of furniture. Perhaps it's easier to see there what I meant about it running the full height of the door: https://www.auctionzip.com/auction-lot/Unusual-French-Louis-XV-Style-Carved-Walnut-Confi_D0B45A6987

drill-in hinge


Explanation:
I cannot take credit for this suggestion, which comes from a most knowledgeable well-wisher who is sadly no longer a member here.

Apparently he found this some time ago, and notes that there are still some examples to be found on Google.

It certainly describes very well the type of mounting, which is really what is unusual about this type of hinge.

Ah yes, I see what you mean: this would apply to the smaller, individual variant, but perhaps not so much to the full-length version.

Asker: Thanks, this is indeed a similar type of hinge in terms of how it's fitted, but it's described separately in my document as a "fiche à visser".
