looking to buy one of these for outdoors in the garden. Cushions nice but not 100% necessary. 766-4338

I believe what you are looking for is cast iron.

Most all of the metal garden furniture made in Jalisco and Michoacán is made of sand-cast aluminum; I haven't seen real cast iron for many long years.  Cast aluminum is quite heavy and durable.  IMHO the best is made in Tzurumútaro, Michoacán--between Pátzcuaro and Tzintzuntzan.  Much of what's made there is sold in Tonalá/Tlaquepaque, and it's less expensive to buy from the maker.  

I had this set made for me in Tzurumútaro about a year ago (table is 2 meters in diameter, there are six chairs).  It's very heavy and cost me about 5000 pesos total, including the custom paint job and delivery/placement of the set.   I bought the cushions separately, on Amazon.com, for about $40USD including shipping for the six.

I'd call that a park bench, not a settee love-seat.

Check the local consignment resale shops usually they have them, I saw a red one about six months ago in Riberas
