We needed some new dishes and we found some very pretty Vintage China at the second hand store. Now I'm wondering though whether it is safe to use them? I could get a swab Lead kit but people reviewing said it wasn't accurate without an expensive machine to actual test for Lead. After doing internet searches, it seems to be divided whether it is safe to use vintage dishware for daily use? Anybody have any information about the likelihood of lead and cadmium in older dishes? These particular dishes are marked Cunningham & Pickett, hand decorated, in Alliance, Ohio.
