Quaich 5 1/2 inches 

  


58.00 / $75.40


 


The largest of the family this beautiful 5 1/2 " pewter Quaich features a plain highly polished bowl which contrasts wonderfully with the ornate Celtic Knot style handles - the Balmoral Crest sits in the centre of the bowl. Supplied in a gift box.

Traditionally the "Quaich" which originated in the Scottish highlands was used both for a "Cup of Welcome" and also when offering a farewell drink. The Quaich was originally made from the primitive "staved" wood, then later from horn or leather, eventually pewter and silver becoming popular as it became the favourite drinking cup throughout Scotland. Being derived from the Gaelic word "cuach" meaning "shallow cup" the distinctive design has remained unchanged over the centuries - a shallow drinking bowl with 2 handles, colloquially known as "lugs".'
