Longaberger Pottery Vitrified China Small Burgundy Plate: 56 ppm Lead + 101 ppm Cadmium

Longaberger Pottery Vitrified China Small Burgundy Plate: 56 ppm Lead + 101 ppm Cadmium

When tested with an XRF instrument this Burgundy colored small plate by Longaberger Pottery  had the following levels:

  • Lead (Pb): 56 +/- 21 ppm
  • Cadmium (Cd): 101 +/- 16 ppm
  • Barium (Ba): 931 +/- 103 ppm
  • Tin (Sn): 6,271 +/- 271 ppm
  • Zinc (Zn): 76 +/- 29 ppm
  • Copper (Cu): 210 +/- 59 ppm
  • Iron (Fe): 1,132 +/- 236 ppm
  • Bismuth (Bi): 76 +/- 21 ppm
  • Vanadium (V): 1,086 +/- 79 ppm
  • Titanium (Ti): 2,225 +/- 148 ppm
  • Indium (In): 60 +/- 19 ppm
  • Zirconium (Zr): 10,900 +/- 400 ppm

The level of Lead found in this plate is considered safe by all standards. The level of Cadmium is low, and it is common to find Cadmium in many red glazed items. It is slightly above some of the safety standards – but there is no specific safety standard for total Cadmium content in dishware as detectable with an XRF instrument.
