  2. @ vendetta, I did smoke out of it once, using a replacement hose....it hit smoothly, and due to the 40" of metal it had to pass through, surprisingly cool. I tried some Naklah Scheherezade cardamom in it, and it tasted better than it ever did in my everyday hookahs. I then tried some Naklah Double Apple, and it seemed to ease the clove back of it a bit. I had to use moistened paper towels to seal the upstem to the base, and to seal the bowl on the top to avoid air leakage. I'm guessing that cloth used to be used for this purpose at one point. I really wish the hose could be restored...it's my favorite part of the hookah! Seems to have succumbed to some dry-rotting on the inside, though.
  3. Hi....thanks for responding. The bowl is solid brass, with slightly rough holes that appear to be hand-drilled as opposed to machined. There is a sticker on the base that says (in English) "Made in Syria". The sticker looks rather aged, with an older style font. I purchased this from a yard sale, held by people of Middle Eastern descent (I want to say Pakistani, but I'm not 100% sure.) The older gentleman (60s) said it belonged to his father, and came with him from overseas....they had always used it as a house decoration. Now my curiosity is getting to me LOL
  4. Actually, it's closer to 48" tall. I broke out a ruler and measured it....I tried to Google it, finding a similar blue base, but no info on green ones at all.
  5. So, I bought an antique hookah at a yard sale about 6 months ago. I paid 75 bucks for it..It's a Syrian hookah, a hand-painted green base with a Qajar portrait on it. The hookah stands about 30" tall, the stem is bi-metal (copper and brass) with a wide ash-catcher and has an intricately beaded hose. I love it, and am not really looking to part with it, but I'm looking for a rough value for insurance purposes...can anyone help me out with this? Many thanks in advance!
