Reddish orange vintage Pyrex refrigerator dish with most of paint worn off.
When tested with an XRF instrument this piece had the following reading for Lead:
Lead (Pb): 23,000 ppm.
This is a great example of how the colors on these pieces wear. The question is… where does that Leaded color go? Also important note: even with so much wear, it still tested incredibly high for Lead.
What do you think the Lead level may have been with the color fully intact?
Did you make a guess?
Write it down.

Please share and browse the photo library (click on the #XRFTesting link above) of this site to see items I have personally tested that have tested both positive and negative for lead.
