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.
You can see more antique/vintage items I have tested here.
