Looks like the micro v2 I just tried out on Saturday

Holding a ruler up to it may help out a bit.

its a lot smaller than your typical, or even smallest, v2 crown micro.

i vaguely recall santinos old website saying something about a funnel he used to sell that was smaller than the micro that he discontinued because he couldnt get them to consistently smoke well. I dont remember it's name, but i remember it being in the old lexicon. (its since been removed).

He also was kicking around the idea of a bowl he was tentatively calling the me-cro bowl, but he never released it.

I dunno, it looks a lot like mine size wise. Shorter 'spire' height at first glance (or from that angle) compared to mine though.

Let me see if I can get to photobucket and finally get some pictures uploaded.

EDIT: Here is one that shows the bowl. It's hard to get an idea of how tiny it is though in this picture. I can take one with my hand and a ruler for some scaling for you tonight.

Heide your is much more bubble-ish than mine and has a taller spire for sure

The legendary "One Coal Bowl". It is an item of great myth. It is said that creating the bowl drove the glassblower mad, and smoking from this bowl will cause insanity in even the strongest of men.

I'd imagine the bubble-ish-ness and spire height vary a good bit between each bowl if they are hand blown. Instead of taking a picture with a ruler last night, I loaded it with some Zaghloul and smoked it instead. I'd give my apologies, but I am not sorry and thoroughly enjoyed it

Ha, the vase is actually 4" PVC stuff. 6" of clear I found on ebay and two access adapters (one flush plug, one normal plug with a reducer drilled into it). I'm not overly happy with it, personally, but an odd majority of the people who have come over seem to like it a lot. It holds water and provides a threaded leak proof attachment to the 'heart'... so it works in my book.

...its ok, i used 2 coals on it. But it was overpacked, i guess i might be able to get away with one coal if i had a close fitting wind cover

spire height is a little variable but the bubble shape didnt really show up in crown bowls until after the kaloud lotus became popular. it happened before he started making the crown cloud because people were asking for micros with wider rims to better accommodate the lotus.

there was a bowl called the one coal bowl, but it was a variation of the classic, not funnel style...

Thanks for the info. I may end up getting a lotus down the road, but I imagine I would pick up a larger bowl for it as well as more of a party setup.

The bowl is still soaking in some oxyclean/TSP solution. The Zaghloul I was smoking really baked on there and I didn't want to chip it off forcefully. I didn't forget about getting a few pictures with some measurements.
