Iron Garden Furniture

Antique Chairs | eBay - Electronics, Cars, Fashion
Iron Victorian-style garden furniture is popular again. Antique examples should be more expensive than reproductions, about $500 to $800 for new, thousands of dollars for old. Layers of paint suggest old, but lack of paint may indicate sandblasting to remove old paint from old furniture. Other clues to age are the nuts and bolts used to join arms, legs, backs, etc. The oldest nuts are square. Later nuts are octagonal.
