Proposition 65

Helping Our Customers Understand California Proposition 65

All of our dinnerware, glassware and other items used for serving food are tested to ensure that they meet FDA and California Proposition 65 requirements for lead and cadmium.

Like most fine crystal glasses, some of our William Yeoward collection, Riedel glassware and Waterford stemware is made using lead. In accordance with Proposition 65, we issue the following warning to our California customers: "Use of this product will expose you to lead and/or cadmium, chemicals known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm."

In accordance with Proposition 65, when a ceramic glaze meets FDA standards but fails to meet the standards of Proposition 65, we issue the following warning to our California customers: "The materials used as colored decorations on the exterior of this product contain lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm." If the interior or pouring lip of a serving vessel is finished with a glaze that contains lead, we issue the following warning: "Use of this product will expose you to lead and/or cadmium, chemicals known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm."
