Possible to 'seal' chips in ceramic dinnerware?

I've inherited a set of Vernon Ware "Tickled Pink" ceramic dinnerware (manufactured 1955-1958). Several pieces in the set have small to medium-sized chips (usually along edges of dishes, platters, cup handles). I plan to use this dinnerware set, and would like to repair the chips (if possible). Is there some type of sealant that I can paint on the chips to prevent further damage, seal out microbes? I also wonder about the presence of lead in this dinnerware. My Google search on this topic was unsuccessful, so any help is appreciated. Thank you.
