    Darn! This bums me out! I love my JB Rose Chintz! I never would have thought that they would contain lead!! These dishes were my parents ‘casual’ dining set they got when they married, and I have several pieces from that set – dinner and salad plates. I’ve been eating off of them my whole life. I am now 50.

    I am grateful for this information, and will immediately cease to use them for edibles. They will look lovely under my potted plants 🙂 !

    Thank you for your posts!
