2.5'' Pewter Quaich Celtic Knot

PQ201
2.5'' Pewter Quaich Celtic Knot

English Pewter Company are rightly proud of the traditional and elegant items within our range of pewterware, and some such items which exude this traditional elegance better than any others are undoubtedly our selection of pewter Quaich. This beautiful pewter Quaich features a plain highly polished bowl which contrasts wonderfully with the ornate Celtic Knot style handles and Celtic Band which runs around the top of the bowl.

All of the Quaich are provided beautifully packaged in an elegant cream and black presentation box. All of our Quaich come complete with a colour leaflet explaining the history of the Quaich which reads; 'The Highland Quaich. Traditionally the "Quaich" which originated in the Scottish highlands was used both for a "Cup of Welcome" and also when offering a farewell drink. The Quaich was originally made from the primitive "staved" wood, then later from horn or leather, eventually pewter and silver becoming popular as it became the favourite drinking cup throughout Scotland. Being derived from the Gaelic word "cuach" meaning "shallow cup" the distinctive design has remained unchanged over the centuries - a shallow drinking bowl with 2 handles, colloquially known as "lugs".'
