  • If authenticity is what you are looking for then cast iron is the material of choice for ornamental lamp posts. Cast iron posts have been around since the early 19th century. In those days transportation of this extremely heavy material was quite difficult so most towns used local manufacturers to produce their lamp posts. Due to local influence, styles unique to these small towns and cities were developed across the United States. Many of our cast iron products reflect these unique styles and are accurate in scale and design.

    Cast iron is very durable due to its high tensile strength and weight. Vandals would have a difficult time damaging this product.

    Over the years myths have developed about cast iron posts. Some have said that cast iron posts will rust away to nothing.
