Introduction to Classic wrought iron

                The main differences between classic wrought iron and the mass production, made of prefabricated details are:

                First of all are the hand forged details, second is the design, third - the use of materials, and finally the processing and finishing works to ensure a long life of the product. Real wrought iron production has no hollow elements, generally ticker and heavier solid profiles. Classic design replicates or it is a derivative of different designs from the past according to the given period. We should point out that it is impossible for the mass production to follow a real old designs because one has to forge, cast and use techniques that are used by the blacksmiths in the old days, every piece has to be made by hand and unique.

                Below are examples of real wrought iron products and replicas of classic designs some of them are over 200 years old.

                In conclusion the process of manufacturing a real wrought iron, compared to the assembly of prefabricated items, is more time and labor consuming, because each element needs to be hand forged to the required shape. Decorative elements such as casted leaves, rosettes etc. are cast of brass or iron, and often a new model has to be made depending on the overall design. The final product that our customers receive is always unique.
