THE CUP OF FRIENDSHIP
Originating in the Scottish Highlands and used by the Clans, traditionally the Quaich was a symbol of hospitality, peace and friendship. A shallow drinking receptacle with two handles on opposite sides which were typically carved out of wood or horn.
Both practical and decorative, these cups were used to offer a welcoming drink (usually whisky) at clan gatherings and family occasions. At weddings, the Quaich symbolised the shared love between a couple and the coming together of their families.
Today the Quaich is still gifted to mark important occasions, they are especially popular for christenings, weddings, anniversaries. They also make lovely retirement gifts or trophies.
This style is suitable for engraving on the centre disc as well as the lugs. We would not recommend engraving on the rim.
The disc measures 18mm on the small and 20mm on the large, we suggest maximum 10 characters on the small and 20 on the large. For each lug
