Default Re: High End Narghile Auction

Although I never bought anything at one of those auctions I used to attend such events once or twice a year. Basically, serious collectors and museums go to the auctions which are for some reason often held in Turkey, Riyadh and a few places in Europe. The more expensive ones are made from antique porcelain or precious metal and are usually restored by professionals.

I used to go to the pre-auction exhibitions and look at the smoking art. Generally, they donít let you take pictures at these things which is something I never liked. I havenít been to one for a while now but they are a lot of fun (free champagne, tobacco and great food) if you donít mind talking to obsessive collectors.
