quiach /kwex/ pronounced: kw-ay-ch
derived from Gaelic cuach 'cup'
It is hard to guess from its appearance exactly what a quaich is. Indeed, you'd be forgiven for thinking that it was a small decorative bowl with little other purpose, beyond being aesthetically pleasing. In fact, the quaich has a much more interesting beginning than that of a posh ornament.
About Edwin Blyde Pewter
The Spur has been the Trademark of Edwin Blyde & Co. Ltd for some 130 years when one of the Blyde family joined the Company straight from a Cavalry Division of the British Army.
Blyde's history can be traced back as far as the 18th century when one of its main activities was the manufacture of Pewterware. Blyde's manufacturing started when steam power and belt driven motors were used, when candle and oil were the only means of light, through the torrid times of world wars.
