A Quaich is a traditional Scottish drinking cup. The two lugs (or handles) emphasise its symbolism as the cup of friendship. It derives from the Scottish Gaelic word 'cuach', which is translated as 'cup'. This fine little example is made of stained Alder, Beech and banded in Willow...just look at the craftsmanship that went into the making of this one, how the Alder is "feathered" to lock into the Beech....wonderful!

Scottish. C1840-60
