    I was given a gift of a pewter stein. It is marked BMF-Zinn 94% and is stamped Germany.

    My question is this – does this stein contain lead?

    My research seems to say no, that BMF is post WWII and won’t contain any lead. However, I have not turned up anything that said definitively that it does not.

    Your stein should have an angel, indicating it is lead-free. Actually, it could contain up to .05% lead and still be considered safe and lead-free.
