Musical wine glass launched

A wine glass has been developed in Austria that plays musical notes when a finger is run along the rim.

The lead-free crystal glass features gold lines corresponding to different musical notes covering a full 12-note octave from A flat to G.

Each etching denotes the level of wine required to play that particular note.

For a “lush, sonorous note”, the makers recommend running a finger along the rim.

The same note will also ring out with a gentle rap of a spoon against the side of the glass.

The glasses, sold in pairs, are available for US$80 from Uncommongoods.com.
