Hand-crafted pewter polished to a high sheen makes this Quaich look more like sterling silver! You will also appreciate the full pedestal and the open celtic knot handles with a 4" wide bowl that will hold plenty of whisky for toasting. The word 'quaich' is derived from the Gaelic word 'Cuach' which means a shallow cup or as we know it today, a drinking cup. The Quaich originated in the Scottish Highlands centuries ago and became the favorite drinking cup throughout Scotland. Traditionally, the Quaich is used when offering a guest 'the cup of welcome' and again when offering the farewell or parting drink. The simple distinctive design of the quaich has remained unchanged over the centuries - a shallow bowl with two handles or ears, colloquially known as 'lugs.' Original quaichs were made from staved wood and then from horn or leather. These materials were later superseded by pewter or silver in the late seventeenth century. The Highland Quaich is now a popular gift and is a prized possession for Scots worldwide. This quaich has a 4" bowl, celtic knot lugs, and an attached wide base, and stands 2.5" tall. Made in the UK.
