June 2017 Newsletter- The British Heatwave of 2017
In our June edition, we talk about the highly anticipated return of Game of Thrones, tell you about the history of the Quaich Bowl and brag about our Vases!
. . .
If you’re from the UK, you’ll agree that we don’t quite know what to make of the heat. When we go off on our Summer Holidays, we love it, can’t get enough of the sun, but if it’s sunny in the UK for more than an afternoon, we’re all flocking to Argos to grab as many fans as we can physically carry, in the Supermarket fighting over who gets what BBQ food and cans of Beer, stocking up on the Factor 50 and some of us are refusing to wear T-Shirts!
Seeing as this heatwave has been with us for several days now, we’re all sweaty and desperate for a slight breeze! Stay strong fellow Brits, you can get through this…

In celebration of the amazing series’ return, let’s just admire our pewter pieces on the big screen, amongst the absolutely perfect Game of Thrones cast.

Fact of the day…
A Quaich is a small shallow bowl with handles and it is traditionally used for drinking whisky, however nowadays they are more often awarded as prizes, or given as gifts and are more commonly made of pewter or silver instead of traditional wood.
The word ‘Quaich’ comes from the Gaelic word ‘cuach’ meaning cup.
The Quaich, also know as a “Loving Cup” or “Cup of Friendship”, is a cherished Scottish invention that originated in the Highlands, where it’s been used for centuries.

The amazing Josh Foster has been taking even more stunning photographs for us…
We have several different pewter vases available, some based on the designs of Rennie Mackintosh and some with such elegant features, that they were good enough to feature in the award winning film Titanic!
If you’re interested in treating yourself or someone you love to one of our vases, have a look on our website.
Our Journeyman watches are a great addition to any outfit, especially if you’re partial to an adventure!
They are able to be clipped onto belt loops or bags and can always tell you the time.
