Miniature Vintage Ceramic Tea Set. Made in Taiwan.
- Platter: 66 +/- 20 ppm Lead (Pb).
- Coffee Pot: 777 +/- 53 ppm Lead (Pb) & 18 +/- 8 ppm Cadmium (Cd).
- Tiny Creamer: 14,200 +/- 500 ppm Lead (Pb) & 42 +/- 11 ppm Cadmium (Cd).
- Tiny Teacup: 3,280 +/- 124 ppm Lead (Pb).
Tested with an XRF instrument. All components tested.
All components were non-detect for mercury and arsenic!
The amount of lead that is considered toxic in a modern / newly manufactured item intended for children is anything 90 ppm lead or higher in the paint, glaze or coating.
I haven’t tested enough modern miniature ceramic tea sets to make a recommendation for a new replacement one (there’s a chance that the miniature industry considers these items “not intended for children” so it is possible that they still contain high levels of lead, even today), however here is nice choice for a lead-free child’s play set.
