For context: Items intended for children are required by current legislation to be under 90 ppm lead in the paint / glaze or coating,
Dishes (especially vintage dishes!) are not regulated for total lead content (via XRF reading.).
I personally stay away from Franciscan dishes at all cost. If you fed me dinner on vintage Franciscan dishware in your home, I would refuse to eat it and would recommend throwing the food away (especially something acidic like spaghetti with sauce!)
I have tested MANY Franciscan pieces and not only are they high positive with an XRF, but they also almost always test positive with a LeadCheck swab (depending on how recently they have been washed or dusted.)
Thank you for reading and for sharing my posts.
