Traditional Highland Greeting Cup
Quality Polished Pewter Quaich
Measuring 5 1/4" W x

The word Quaich is derived from the
Gaelic "Cuach" which means
This simple cup with two handles or
"Lugs" was originally made
from wood, horn or leather. Later
pewter was used, an ancient and traditional
metal used in Scotland for centuries.
Pewter was discovered by the Romans
about 200 AD and was known as the
"Metal of Kings" because
it could only be afforded by royalty.
This Highland Greeting Cup is now
gaining popularity for toasting many
of King Robert the Bruce
as long as a hundred of us remain alive
- It is in truth not for glory nor riches
we are fighting but for freedom - For
that alone - which no honest man gives
up but with life itself"
