A Georgian Scottish Silver Quaiche from GlasgowSOLD

This rare Scottish silver Quaiche was made in Glasgow circa 1743 by James Glen. Scottish silver of this period is rare, and Glasgow silver even more so! It is slightly crudely made, with beautiful thistle engraving on the handles. Inside the bowl are traces of stave engraving, which was intended to simulate the wooden construction of original Wooden Scottish Quaiches.

This is a very pretty and really rather rare piece of Scottish silver. Quaiche's are, of course, a quintessential Scottish object. To find Georgian Glasgow example is rare indeed! The Quaiche measures just under 12cm from handle to handle.

Type: quaiche
Function: drinking
Maker: James Glen
Country: Scottish
