What are "standard components"?
Unlike true wrought iron or authentically hand forged metal work, stock components are usually manufactured with mass production machinery. Some of these products appear pretty bu they lack the soul and refinement that true wrought iron or “hand forged” metalwork imparts. It comes down to whether you the real thing or a machine produced imitation.
