that would be fair enough if all pewter was lead containing..that
has theoretically been outlawed..so unless it's old pewter..there
shouldn't be any lead in the newer pewter alloys..just bismuth
Don't believe that's exactly the case......
Got a new Fire Mountain Catalog last week with about 4 or 5 pages of
pewter pendants in it that mention the fact that the products may
contain varying amounts of lead...... And therefore are not suitable
for children, etc......
Reason it stood out to me is that most of the time catalog folks in
general are mentioning that their pewter is lead free.... In that
same FM catalog there are many more pages of the lead free
I think it's more that you have to let the customer know that the
stuff has lead in it.....and that if it's a product aimed at kids, it
better not have any.....
