Default Latest eBay pick up

I know. I have a problem, but I couldn't pass this up...

So I bought another Syrian hookah off of eBay for $33 plus shipping. I wasn't exactly sure on what I was getting because the sellers photos were a little fuzzy, so I wasn't able to look at the finer details of the pipe, but when it arrived today I was surprised to find out that the hookah I bought, that I thought was going to end up being generic, turned out to be an Al Nawras.

Some interesting things I want to point out are that the base has a sticker on it that says "Made in Lebanon" I was always under the impression that the term Syrian can refer to the place of origin or the style of the hookah, and that Al Nawras were made in Syria. If that's not entirely true I'm always done for some for leaning more information. Also the hose has a sticker on it in Arabic that U wouldn't mind having translated, it could potentially offer more information about this hookah. I understand that the base and hose may have absolutely ties to the stem itself, but like I said I wouldn't mind learning more about them.

Anyways, the pictures of the hookah and everything can found here in this album.

The hose says "genuine Tunisian model", a name I can't make out on my phone (daad**** bros), and a phone number (2227857). The circle has the English letter D.

To my knowledge, there are no hookahs being manufactured in Syria, nor have there been for a very long time. For the last 10 years or so, they've been made in China, and before that, the manufacture was outsourced to Jordan and Lebanon.

The last time I was in Dearborn, I had a discussion about this with a Syrian immigrant who owns a hookah shop. I told him that there are people who are very insistent that their Syrian hookah was actually made in Syria.

He answered by telling me that he was very proud of his oldest son who, at the age of 13 had thrown a rock at a traffic light, breaking out the glass. He made a small fortune on the streets of Damascus selling "genuine uncut Nairobi emeralds" to tourists. Take that for what it's worth.

Very nice looking little pipe- you did well!

Beautiful pipe Mr_Stubbes love how it looks all together. I just snagged a syrian like that model today with different detailing. I'm guessing Nour but looks solid and beautiful felt like taking a gamble, hope i made out well for $30.

By the way, not only the hose from Tunisia. I think that the metal bowl is also a Tunisian.
