This pewter quaich has a celtic design around the bowl, as well as a thistle design on the handles. The quaich has a diameter of 3.5".
The word "Quaich" is derived from the Gaelic "cuach" which means shallow cup. It became a favorite drinking cup throughout Scotland, originating centuries ago in the Western Highlands. Used for welcoming visitors or bidding farewell to friends, the Quaich was used by proud clan chiefs, worthy merchants or humble crofters and, as such, this unique yet simple drinking vessel has kept its beautiful shape and friendly purpose.
