Heathergems 3" Polished Pewter Quaich
Finest handmade pewter Quaich with a Heathergem on each handle.
Heathergems are handcrafted from the stems of Scottish Heather. The heather is collected from the Perthshire hills. The stems are then dried, shotblasted to remove the bark and dyed various colours. The stems are then mixed and compressed into a block. Approximately eighty tons of pressure is required to press the stems together.
The heather handles are handrafted by our skilled craftworkers before being lacquered to give the final finish. This unique process means no two handles are the same.
The word Quaich is derived from the gaelic word "cuach" which means shallow cup or as we know it today, a drinking cup of friendship.
Supplied in a gift box and story card.
