#Leaded: Little Vintage (1980s?) Plastic Avon Bear

Vintage Plastic Avon Bear Pin.
2,300+ ppm lead (Pb).

The amount of lead that is considered toxic in the paint or coating of a modern item manufactured and intended for use by children is anything 90 ppm lead or higher. I have tested quite a few vintage and newer Avon items that have been very high lead.  I would not risk giving Avon jewelry or decorative items to my children.

Tested with an XRF instrument.
