The quaich is a shallow two-handled drinking cup or bowl unique to Scotland. It derives from the Gaelic word 'cuach' meaning a cup and is traditionally used for handing round a dram of whisky or brandy.
More romanticaly, in 1589, King James VI of Scotland gave Anne of Denmark a quaich, or 'loving cup' as a wedding gift. It has now become a traditional wedding present.
Part of the Loch Long Stoneware range of rustic functional tableware, handmade by Tom Butcher in Scotland. Due to the hand made nature of these pieces and the reduction firing process, both glaze and body may alter in colour slightly depending on where they are positioned in the kiln. Items may vary slightly from those shown, but this only adds to the charm.
The oatmeal glaze used is food safe. Crackles within the glaze may appear after extended use – this is a natural feature of this glaze and does not affect its porosity.
Reduction fired stoneware with a food safe oatmeal glaze. Dishwasher safe.
Height: 5.5cm, diameter: 9cm plus 4cm handles each side.
