"Quaich" is a Scots rendering of the Gaelic word “cuach” which means cup. The two-handed design of this drinking vessel incorporates trust, on the part of both giver and receiver, this is a fantastic example with English hallmarks dating it to the Art Deco period.
The silver hallmark can be found to the one side, this is where you see an anchor for the Birmingham assay office along with the date letter for the year 1936. The makers for G S Twist can also be found here. There are small air holes to the base of the handles, these are the product of the manufacture as the handles are hollow. All in great order please see the pictures.
