Engraved Wine Glass Safety Rim

Wine glasses that are machine made can have a safety rim, which is a “bead” of glass around the top of the glass.  The bead prevents the user from cutting their lip on the edge of the glass.  This feature is usually found in less expensive glasses.

It is important to note that wine connoisseurs do not like safety rims and will generally not consider any glass with a safety rim a glass that they would keep in their collection for everyday personal use.
