Small Pier 1 Decorative Saucer with Stars: 85 ppm lead (+/- 15 ppm). [The stars were positive for 3,615 ppm gold!]
Tamara’s Grade: “C”
“C” = I would not want to use it in my home. If you offered me something to eat on this when I am visiting you, I would be fine with that. It is likely not leaching, but since lead-free dishes can be found, I prefer to have the lead-free options in my home. [Here’s my post about the dishes I have in my home, & the next set I plan on getting – since ours have mostly broken in the past 12 years!].
Please note: Vintage gold decorated dishes often have high levels of lead in the gold trim and decorations. The fact that the gold on this one was negative for lead was very surprising!
