Footnotes

  • The basket weave-decorated quaich is similar to two illustrated E. Pinto, Treen & Other Wooden Bygones (1985), Plate 46. The explanatory text on pp. 54 notes, 'in the first decade of the 19th century, some nicely made hardwood quaichs were carved externally in a basket-weave pattern. Some of them are silver-mounted and engraved with Gaelic inscriptions...All give the impression of coming from the same workshop.'
