Victorian Brass Saucepans

I have some Victorian brass saucepans. Would it be safe to use them for cooking?

Brass is usually an alloy of copper and zinc, so I don't think it would harm you. But since it's old, the composition may be different...and may contain lead? Anyway, if they are valuable or of sentimental value, I wouldn't use them for cooking because they might get dinged and scratched.

I agree with Claudia's comments. And frankly, wouldn't use any cookware that isn't absolutely modern.

We all thought aluminum and teflon were safe, and now we're hearning about their dangers.
