How can you tell if wrought iron is vintage?
One way to tell if wrought iron is vintage is to look for markings that indicate who produced it. Markings may appear on the underside, back and legs of wrought iron furniture. You can then use trusted online resources to determine when the maker was active and producing pieces similar to yours. Consult a certified appraiser or knowledgeable antiques dealer if you can't find markings or have difficulty dating a piece. Shop a variety of wrought iron furniture on 1stDibs.
