Wrought Iron Chandeliers
Before we proceed any further it is important to note that the term wrought iron used to refer to a type of iron alloy which made the iron very malleable, easy to weld and at the same time strong. After the advent of steel, wrought iron is rarely manufactured and the real wrought iron on the market today is mostly all to replace and restore historical items. Whatever you find on the market labelled as wrought iron is more likely to be a type of mild steel.
Mild steel is a steel with a higher percentage of carbon and has similar properties to wrought iron’s. Whether you buy a real wrought iron or a mild steel chandelier ensure that your ceiling can support it as this type of chandeliers can be rather heavy. On the plus side they do require very little maintenance especially compared to crystal or glass chandelier. Worth also noting that most wrought iron chandeliers will look better in a traditional or rustic decor but there are models on the market that might look great in a more minimalistic and modern decor. Wrought iron chandeliers can be found both as electric as non electric.
