This Anchor Hocking milk glass casserole was positive for Lead when tested with an XRF instrument.
The blue flowers had the following readings:
- Lead (Pb): 18,600 +/- 400 ppm
- Cadmium (Cd): 137 +/- 13 ppm
The flowers were non-detect for mercury (Hg) and arsenic (As.)
The plain white of the milk glass on this piece was negative for lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic.
My advice: Avoid vintage milk glass pieces in your home whenever possible, especially those that are painted with brightly colored decorations.
