Sorry, this item is out of stock.

This is a lovely miniature silver quaich made by William Robb of Ballater.

With the Royal family's Scottish retreat at Balmoral Castle just down the road, William Robb exploited his location to sell Scottish-themed silver to the many visitors in the area. A quaich is an ancient Scottish drinking vessel traditionally used to drink whisky and often passed between two people with both holding the handles and taking a sup from opposite sides of the bowl. 

In line with the majority of Robb's work, this quaich was hallmarked in Edinburgh and also bears the "ROBB BALLATER" mark within a triangle to one of the handles. The quaich is in excellent condition.
