Leaded Mugs: Yellow & Blue

Yellow Mug: 200 ppm lead
Blue Mug: non-detect for lead.
No mark or maker
At my friend Nancy’s house.  She loves “yard-sailing”!

This is one of several posts where I will share very little information and really focus on the photos and the XRF Test results.  If you have an interest in learning more about these posts (likely because you are new to my site!) please check out this post and this post for a start!  Thanks for visiting!

Note:  I am not saying that any of these dishes will poison you (I rarely say something like that! – with colorful vintage Pyrex and any vintage Franciscan dishware being at the top of my #BeConcerned list.) However I am saying that most dishware is not regulated (and not tested) for total lead content (as measured with an XRF) and IF we can choose lead-free dishware, why wouldn’t we?  For context: the amount of lead that is considered unsafe for an item intended for children (by today’s modern standards and regulations for newly manufactured goods) is anything with a lead level of 90 ppm or higher.  As a result I think it’s a reasonable goal to look for (and choose for our homes) dishware that tests negative for lead (or at least at levels below 90 ppm lead.)
