Celtic Polished Pewter Quaich

This product is unavailable

The word "QUAICH" is derived from the Gaelic word "Cuach" which means "shallow cup" or as we know it today, a "drinking cup".  The Quaich originated in the Scottish Highlands centuries ago and became the favourite 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 but pleasingly distinctive design of the Quaich has remained unchanged over the centuries - a shallow bowl with two handles or ears, colloquially known as "lugs".

The original Quaichs were made in he primitive "staved" wood form and then from horn or leather.  These materials were later superseded by Pewter and Silver in the late seventeenth century.  The Highland Quach is now a popular gift line and is prized possession of many people who have an association with Scotland.
