Originating in the Scottish Highlands, traditionally the quaich served as a ‘cup of welcome’ and when offering a farewell drink. The quaich was originally made from the primitive ‘staved’ wood and later crafted from horn or leather. Eventually, pewter and silver became popular as the quaich became the favourite drinking cup throughout Scotland.

The term Quaich derives from the Gaelic word “cuach” meaning “shallow cup”. Scottish Gaelic comes from Old Irish Gaelic with the languages sharing many similarities. Over the centuries the distinctive design has remained unchanged – a shallow drinking bowl with 2 handles, referred to colloquially as ‘lugs’.

What is the story behind our Engraved Scottish Quaichs?

According to the 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica, bleeding vessels frequently used in England and the Netherlands in the 17th Century inspired the design of the quaich having the low silver bowls with two flat handles.  Another popular theory suggests a scalloped shell inspired the shape of the quaich. However, this seems to have had its origins in the now discredited poems of James Macpherson, supposedly translations of poems by Ossian, son of Fionn mac Cumhaill.

In his 1955 Monograph ‘Some Scottish Quaichs’, Richard L. McCleneahan, suggests that the quaich evolved directly from the medieval mazer. This seems unlikely as the form and material (burr maple for mazers) are quite different. 

Today, the term Celtic generally refers to the languages and respective cultures of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, the Isle of Man, and Brittany, also known as the Celtic nations. Scottish Celts historically emerged from an amalgamation of two Celtic-speaking peoples, the Picts and Gaels, who founded the Kingdom of Scotland (or Alba) in the 9th century. The heritage and artworks from these early Scots can still be seen throughout popular Scottish design today.

Some quaichs’ have a bottom made of glass, allegedly so that the drinker could keep watch on his companions. A more romantic quaich had a double glass bottom. A gentleman would keep a lock of hair so that the owner could drink from his quaich to his lady love. In 1589, King James VI of Scotland gave Anne of Denmark a quaich or “loving cup” as a wedding gift.

In 2014, the Commonwealth Games hosted in Glasgow gave its winners Paul Hodgkiss designed wooden commemorative quaichs.
