Thank you for reading and for sharing my posts (to help educate other parents in your lives about this important issue.) There are always safer choices out there, there is never a reason to have a leaded item in your home – especially if it is something your children use on a regular basis.

#asktamara Can you help me out with a question I have about teacups. I have some that came from my aunts grandmother. They are all from England. I would love to have a tea party with ,t girls when they are older. Do I need an XRF instrument or do you suppose a at home swan test would be sufficient? If you would recommend an XRF test, how do I find someone to test it? Thank you!
Old teacups from engaged will be leaded. My findings on that have been pretty consistent. A swab test will not likely work on those.
Here is a list of things I have tested that are marked “Made in England”: https://tamararubin.com/category/made-in-england/

Thank you for asking good questions!
Wow! Thank you for your reply and information! How sad. Any good recommendations how to buy teacups that would be safe? I’m very new to all of this.
Thank you so much for all your work testing and finding safe items! Just curious, is there a reason you specify the blue teacup or can we assume all colors in the Ikea set are safe as well? Thank you!
With these I only tested the blue teacup (people send me specific things to test – and that’s what directs what I report on.) I would expect the others from this set are similar.
Here’s how to send something in for testing: https://tamararubin.com/2019/08/tamara-can-i-send-you-one-of-my-dishes-to-test-for-lead/
