This handcrafted Pewter Quaich will be engraved with your own personalised message in two positions around the OUTSIDE of the bowl as shown in the main photo. An unusual and valued Wedding, Christening or Birthday gift. Your beautiful personalised Quaich will be treasured for years to come! The Highland Quaich - "the cup of friendship".
This Quaich Bowl is made of the finest pewter and is handmade in the U.K. Pewterware is made entirely by the skilled hands of a pewtersmith. No two pieces of pewter are exactly the same, minor variations and imperfections show the mark of each craftsman reflecting the art and beauty of all individually made pieces - a break away from the modern machine world.
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 for 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, known as "lugs". Originally made from wood, horn or leather, the Highland Quaich is now made of Pewter or Silver and is a popular gift and prized possession by many people who have an association with Scotland.
