This piece is a GREAT example of how newly produced / newly manufactured/ newly sold items DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE ANY LEAD! Even the unglazed white ceramic edge (the circle around the logo on the base pictured above) was non-detect for Lead, etc.

Take that Pioneer Woman! 😉 If Crate & Barrel can make Lead-free ceramic dishes, why can’t you?

Please do take a moment to read the exact XRF test results for this item so you can see what is in it (in the absence of Lead, Mercury, Cadmium and Arsenic.)

To see more white ceramic items I have tested, Click HERE. Please note that just because something is WHITE does not mean it is lead-free, there are several examples of white ceramic items on my site that have, in fact, tested positive for very high levels of lead (here’s a good one – LINK.)

As always, please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for reading and for sharing my posts.
