Which was all I was getting at, despite the long-windedness of it. :-)
The fact is that a lot of unsafe pottery is used for cooking in a lot
of areas of the world. Lead oxide is a very easy to use and readily
available material that works very well as the base for a glaze in
the typical low-fire earthenware used for a lot of traditional
cooking vessels. It is better to be cautious and check it than to be
taken by surprise.
