Small vintage / antique red Pyrex dish • 53,900 ppm lead
The current federal hazard level for an item intended for children [The level at which an item is considered unsafe] is 90 ppm lead and higher. Not 900. Not 9,000. Definitely not 53,900. Given the amount of wear on the coating on vintage dishware like this I highly recommend not using them. Ever. Antiques and dishware are not regulated for total lead content (as detectable with an XRF.)
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.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
When you are testing the vintage Pyrex dishes, are your numbers for the inside or the outside of the dish?
