Strawberry Shortcake Mug & Glass – 1980s vintage.
As high as 87,500 ppm lead (on the painted decorations).
Tested with an XRF.
This level of lead is common in the painted decorations on both modern and vintage decorated mugs and glasses.
While in most case the leaded decoration is only on the outside of the glass, your lips can still easily touch the leaded part on the outside while drinking. Many children’s glasses also have leaded decorative interiors, so keep an eye out for that! I would avoid something like this altogether. I do not have any decorated glassware or mugs in my home.
