What is wrought-iron furniture?

1 Answer

Wrought iron is a highly refined iron alloy that is tough, malleable, corrosion resistant and easily welded. It is no longer produced on a commercial scale. Many items, including garden furniture, referred to today as wrought iron are actually made of mild steel. They are called wrought iron because they resemble objects that in the past were “wrought” by hand, rather than cast.
