A Lead Question

Bowl from Nishapur, lead-glazed earthenware with a slip decoration.
In the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.


Does anyone have any experience with importing or bringing lead glazed pots into the States? There are guidelines here, and I will try to interpret them ASAP, but thought I would ask around. Thanks!

Michael, I think that if you used USPS or UPS etc to send a pot or two you'd be OK with a lead glazed pot. The last time that i tried to send pots back from england via a consolidator I met a problem. Customs wanted a lead test performed.
There may be exceptions for 'antiques'
