Reference —  Lead
Until recently lead was used extensively in a variety of forms as a flux for low- or medium-temperature glazes. Although the dangers of handling toxic lead were known quite early, its solubility in acid foods and liquids was not understood until comparatively recently. Lead glazes should not be used on food containers.
