Solid Pewter Base
2 Pairs of Thistles Serve as Handles
4" Diameter, 2" High
Legend has it that Scottish soldiers were saved one night when Viking marauders, sneaking up to attack, stepped on thistles and cried out in pain - thus alerting the Scottish watchmen and saving them all! The thistle has been a proud symbol of the Scots ever since. The quaich is the ancient vessel used to celebrate a bond between two clans, each partaking of the offered drink. These two traditions combine in this glass quaich set in a solid pewter base, with two pairs of thistles serving as the handles. 4" diameter, 2" high. Made in the UK by the longest-established family firm of pewterers in the world-since 1779!
