Traditional Drinking Vessels

Firstly, traditional quaichs are made of wood and some early quaichs are stave-built like barrels. Moreover, quaiches can have two, and more rarely three or four, short projecting handles.

However, other wooden quaiches were lathe-turned from a single piece of wood. In addition there were others that were turned and then carved outside in basket-weave pattern. In addition to wood, commemorative quaichs awarded as prizes, or often given as gifts, are more commonly made out of pewter or silver.

Likewise, wooden commemorative quaichs were given as presents to winners at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
