The term wrought iron literally means “worked iron”, because of the way it can be shaped when it is soft and malleable. Wrought iron is a material that was initially popular in the early days before steel came into the picture. Due to its tough, malleable, ductile, corrosion-resistant and easily welded features wrought iron was the most sought after material. Many items such as nails, wire, chains, rails, railway couplings, water and steam pipes, nuts, bolts, horseshoes, handrails, wagon tires and many more were made of wrought iron. Although currently wrought iron is not produced on a commercial scale there are still many things that are made of this unique material and one of them is furniture!
