For context: The amount of lead that is considered toxic in a modern/newly manufactured item made and intended for use by children is anything 90 ppm lead or higher in the coating. Vintage dishware was not regulated for total lead content and modern dishware is not regulated for total lead content as detectable with an XRF.
In my opinion there should be no lead in our dishes and kitchen items. Click here to see the dishes I use in my home.
