Quaich - Hand Carved
This beautiful hand carved quaich is individually turned and carved from a spalted beech. Spalting is caused by a fungus infestation which leaves the timber with black figuring, giving it a marble-like appearance. The pattern for the lugs is based on the 'Scotchman' newspaper and is, of course, the Scottish thistle. The quaich measures 20 cm across and stands 6,5 cm high.
