When tested with an XRF instrument this small vintage clear glass Arcoroc juice tumbler (Made in France) tested positive for Lead with the following reading: 223 ppm.
Here are some Amazon affiliate links* to similar, modern (“Made in France”) lead-free glasses (#SaferChoices!):
In 2018 the amount of lead that is considered toxic in a modern/newly manufactured item intended for children is 90 ppm lead (or higher) in the coating or 100 ppm (or higher) in the substrate. Dishes and glassware are not considered “items intended for children” (even newly made ones that are manufactured in the United States) and, as such, are not regulated for total lead content as tested/detectable with an XRF instrument. That said there is a lot of new clear glassware that is lead free!
