Wooden Quiach with Pewter Rim
This hand crafted Sapelle wood Quaich is 4.5 inches in diameter with a hand cast and turned pewter rim. It has a small pewter disc in the bottom of the quaich suitable for engraving, and on the underside of the Quaich there is a slate disc.
There is a complimentary base to display the Quaich and this has a slate disc embedded in the top engraved with a celtic knot.
A Scottish Quaich is a small two handled drinking vessel, traditionally used for supping and sharing our great quality Whisky. It was commonly given as a Wedding Present or for a Celebration and “Good Luck” gifts.
Most sources agree that the earliest Quaich’s were made from wood and developed in the 16th century. They were made in two styles, one turned from solid wood and the other stave built like a small barrel and held together by willow bands. Silversmiths latterly copied the style and made them in silver. Most even engraved the grain pattern in the metal.
Highlanders often had one hanging from a belt by leather throngs.
Our Quaich’s are lovingly made in our workshop from handpicked timber and hand turned, they are then treated with an oil and wax finish that enhances and protects the wood.
These Quaich’s are not suitable for dishwashers and should only be cleaned with a damp cloth and dried immediately. Keep out of direct sunlight.
