4.25" Mackintosh Quaich Bowl Pewter

  • On rare occasions the very best items of giftware can also be considered as works of art, and that is certainly true of the beautiful CRM399 Pewter Quaich Bowl. Composed of the highest quality pewter, this Quaich shares the same tarnish free characteristics of all of our excellent giftware but it is the design element of the quaich which makes it extra special. The inside of the 4 diameter Quaich bowl features an art nouveau design from world renowned Scottish artist and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and it is this combined with the stylised Art Nouveau leaf handles that makes the Quaich one of the most strikingly beautiful that you will ever be likely to come across. 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 The Quaich was originally made from the primitive "staved" wood, then later from horn or leather, eventually pewter and silver becoming popular as it became the favourite drinking cup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".
