Baum, Made In China, Black & White Ceramic Dish (Butter Dish?): 105 +/- 18 ppm lead on the black (outside), 90 +/- 16 ppm lead on the inside. Non-detect for Cadmium (Cd), Arsenic (As), and Mercury (Hg.) Tested with an XRF instrument.
The amount of lead that is considered unsafe in a modern item intended for children is 90 parts per million or higher. Total lead content in dishware is not regulated. That puts this product in the #LeadSafe range (given the margin of error.) While I would not want to have it in my home (I like to stick with known lead-free dishes!), if you served me food from these dishes while I was visiting you I would not have a problem eating at your home.
