    Re: Canadian Whiskey Tasting Glass?

    any of you guys use lead crystal glasses? Ive been looking at some antiques on ebay, but am unsure of the safety. I know, they say that anything is safe in them for short periods of time, but the idea of slowly poisoning myself isnt the greatest. Might barrel proofers leech the lead quicker? Mostly, I am talking about the truly old antique lead crystal glasses.

    Ive seen the threads on glazed decanters leaching lead, but not any really on crystal lead glass.

    Threadjacking this one isn't where you want to go.

    since some of what I was looking at were old Crown Royal glasses, I dont consider it threadjacking, since it is a canadian whiskey tasting glass......

    Re: Canadian Whiskey Tasting Glass?

    I'd bet there are Candian whiskey glasses with lead in them.

    4I, you can always go ahead and get but don't use them until later in life when you suspect a little lead isn't going make much difference any way.

    Re: Canadian Whiskey Tasting Glass?

    Im kind of more interested if antique crystal lead has more of a risk than modern crystal lead glasses. I doubt theres any significant risk to sipping a 100-120 proof 1-2oz shot over 30 minutes a day....but if the antiques were worse about it, I wouldnt get them.

    I'm guessing that the older those glasses that you're considering are, the more people who drank from them are in fact, dead...Coincidence?!?!?!?
