Base Unglazed Ceramic of Mug (image above)

  • Lead (Pb): 117 +/- 26 ppm
  • Barium (Ba): 403 +/- 79 ppm
  • Chromium (Cr): 5,625 +/- 232 ppm
  • Zinc (Zn): 10,500 +/- 400 ppm
  • Copper (Cu): 625 +/- 80 ppm
  • Nickel (Ni): 502 +/- 107 ppm
  • Iron (Fe): 11,000 +/- 600 ppm
  • Bismuth (Bi): 67 +/- 24 ppm
  • Vanadium (V): 100 +/- 31 ppm
  • Titanium (Ti): 207 +/- 46 ppm
  • Zirconium (Zr): 16,100 +/- 500 ppm
  • Platinum (Pt): 298 +/- 102 ppm
  • Cobalt (Co): 414 +/- 170 ppm

In general I would consider this a safer choice. I was actually quite surprised that the gold flecks were not positive for high levels of lead (as many gold adorned pieces are). While I personally would not want to have these in my home (as a mother of Lead poisoned children I am fairly strict about that), if you served me coffee or tea in one of these mugs when I was visiting you in your home I would be comfortable drinking from it.

Because the clay base is higher Lead content (when tested with an XRF instrument) than the glazed areas, it is quite possible that the glazes are lead-free and the XRF is reading the level of lead in the base clay through the glaze (on the glazed areas that were tested.) This would be consistent with the other glazed ceramic pieces from this brand that I have tested.

Thank you for reading and for sharing my posts.

Please let me know if you have any questions at all.
