The Highlanders Museum The Highland Quaich - Piper The Highland Quaich - The cup of Friendship 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 favorite drinking cup throughout Scotland. Traditionally the Quaich is used when offering a guest the "the cup of welcome" and again when offering the farewell or parting drink. The simple but pleasingly distinctive design of the shallow bowl with two handles or ears, colloquially known as "lugs". The original Quaichs were made in the primitive "staved" wood form and then from horn or leather. These materials were later superseded by pewter and silver in the late seventeenth century. The highland Quaich is now a popular gift line and is a prized possession of many people who have an association with Scotland. 22.5 x 9.5cm Made in Scotland 0 stars, based on 0 reviews 0 5
