Buying Guide

Wrought iron furnishing was very popular during the 18th and early 19th century. Nowadays, wrought iron is iconic with its "old world" vibe. It's one of the many reasons why it's making a comeback, and that is also why more and more homeowners are looking for beautiful wrought iron candle lanterns!

Since a wrought iron candle lantern is a furnishing that belongs to the distant past, not a lot of people know how to pick the best one. Don't worry as this article is going to be a buying guide for wrought iron candle lanterns.

Not a lot of people realize that the term "wrought iron" means two things. In the past, the term means an iron that is bent and hammered into shape. However, it could also mean a specific type of iron with a particular composition. Why is differentiating the two important?

The answer is so you can avoid overpaying. True wrought iron candle lanterns that are bent and hammered into shape take more time and skill. This also means that sellers can charge a higher premium as it's essentially a handcrafted item.

However, a wrought iron is also a specific iron composition, which can be cast and mass produced. Dishonest sellers may take advantage of charging higher prices as you may think it's a handcrafted item when it's not.

  • No two items should be exactly the same.
  • Look for slight imperfections.
  • If it's ultra-smooth, it may be mass produced.

  • Candle Type. These days, candles come in many different forms. Some of the common ones include taper, pillar, votive, candle pot and tea light. Knowing the candle that you'll be using is very important. This is to ensure that you buy the right wrought iron candle lantern that can accommodate the type of candle that you are planning to use.

  • Fit. Another thing that is very important to assess is the fit of the candle. There are primarily two reasons why you'd want to do this. First is for aesthetic reasons. For example, if the tea light candle is too small for a votive, it will look awkward and out-of-place. The second reason is more important. If the candle does not fit snuggly into the holder, it may become a fire hazard. A simple bump could tumble down the candle, which can then start a fire.

  • Wax Issues. Most wrought iron candle lanterns out there will look attractive. However, before buying anything, you should try to anticipate where the wax will go when the candle starts burning. Does it have a receptacle for collecting the melted wax? Does the design allow easy cleaning? These are some of the few questions you should be asking to ensure that the wax won't be too much to deal with.

The primary challenge of finding the right wrought iron candle lanterns is navigating through the myriad of choices. The key points mentioned above should help you get started in weeding out most of the unnecessary option.
