Sunny yellow coffee mug; no mark or maker – 215,800 ppm lead!
Hazard level for a modern/newly manufactured toy is anything 90 ppm lead or greater. There is no regulation** limiting total lead content in dishes as detected with an XRF (especially vintage dishes) & this one is cracked and crazing, so likely leaching lead into the contents, especially acidic contents like coffee!
**There are only regulations on labeling newly manufactured lead containing items (like “Prop 65”) and to some degree regulations on leaching with modern / newly manufactured products [regulating detectable leaching only at the time of manufacture/ not potential leaching after years extensive use and deterioration], but not limits on total lead content in dishware as detectable with an XRF.
