What is Wrought Iron? Traditional wrought iron is produced by a blacksmith, although it can now be mass produced. It is a strong malleable material that can be worked into decorative shapes. It is subject to rust, but properly painted it will survive for centuries.
Wrought iron has a well demonstrated capability to withstand the rigors of the environment and the tests of time - properly treated and maintained, it can still look good after hundreds of years. If fact, you may want to consider acquiring antique wrought iron features as an alternative to new ones.
Mild steel provides a modern and cheaper alternative to wrought iron. It still needs to be painted to prevent rust and it may not weather as well. Nevertheless, once painted, it would be difficult for the untrained eye to distinguish from the real thing.
