I have two of these on my site - and they form a matching pair. However, I am listing each of these separately.
This one is really sweet and of top quality. It is a miniature solid silver Scottish quaich that would be ideal for drinking toasts from at special ceremonial events - or just for display.
Originating in the western highlands centuries ago, over time the quaich has been the favourite drinking cup throughout Scotland and to this day it is whisky that remains a quaich’s most welcome partner. The Gaelic ‘cuach’ means a shallow cup and a quaich has two or three handles known as ‘lugs’.
This one is made by Hamilton and Inches in Edinburgh, and as such is made with exceptional quality. It has a little foot (the diameter of the foot is 3.2 cm). There are two beautifully crafted handles - and it has a hemmed edge at the top. These items by such a prestigious Scottish marker - are always sought after. The design is a simple and rather minimalist one - the quaich has no inscriptions or old monograms on it - clean as a whistle!
This one dates to 1977 (nearly 50 years ago!) and has the Royal Silver Jubilee hallmark for Edinburgh silver on the base, as photographed. It is in just lovely condition with no damage of any kind.
It is a very fine smaller one. Dimensions: from handle to handle it is 10 cm (4 inches). The diameter of the bowl is 7 cm (2 3/4 inches) and the height is 3 cm (1 1/8 inches).
50 grams in weight.
The price is a very fair one for a Silver Jubilee Hallmarked quaich from one of Scotland's finest silversmiths.
