This cup is spun in pewter with a highly polished finish. It features a Celtic scroll design on its handles and has a Celtic braid design around its body. The centre of the bowl is usually decorated with a silver coin or an engraved disc or print, with coat-of-arms, initials, motto or familiar phrase such as 'drink up'. This Scottish drinking vessel, traditionally made of wood was used to carry whisky, brandy or ale to the Highlands and Islands. Over the years, it has been made in stone, horn, brass, pewter, silver and gold. It is said that water drunk from a silver quaich tastes crisp due to the clearing effect of silver.
