Noritake China Saucer: 933 ppm lead (+/- 86 ppm), ND (non-detect) for Hg (mercury), As (arsenic0 & Cd (cadmium)! Most vintage Noritake china I have tested has been positive for high levels of lead.
Tamara’s Grade: “F”
“F” = I would not want to use it in my home, I would (politely) refuse to eat food that you served on it in your home. I would advise you to chuck it. Vintage glazed china with high lead levels has often been found to leach unsafe levels of lead into the food being served in/on it. Drinking coffee from the cup that goes with this saucer would be a definite “no-no” in my book!
Note: the amount of lead that is considered safe in an item intended for children is anything below 90 ppm lead, this is far above 90 ppm lead!
