Default Another KM find!

Spent some more time in a few Khobar shops and stumbled upon this. Not sure which model (anyone know?) but is trimetal in build and 27" from bottom to top of bowl. Most is shiny brass with a copper down tube and only nickel on the hose port, purge valve and above the tray. I really like the engraving on the stem and brown beveled glass. Another brown rainbow hose finishes it off. This is a little gift for my brother! Hope he likes it.

u are one of the very few people to own that model. its a solid brass piece. there were a few very similar ones in the US. PatelBadboy picked one up when he went to Egypt.
Really nice KM
How much did you pay for it?

The price for this with stock glass was about $35. I upgraded to the base you see and added the hose. We are still under $50. Again, I will say that what the state side vendors are charging is fair. Shipping, taxes, etc. is a bunch.

We'll see what else is out there. I believe I'm only scratching the surface and there may very well be some vintage KM collecting dust. I went into another store with this KM under my arm and they asked, "Why you not come here? I give you better price on Mamoon." I going back!

That's a gorgeous piece. I think it's cool how the vase kind of looks like a pineapple.

nice one slisk. you're addicted! i hope you come upon some heirloom pieces!

one point.. you know, the japanese come to the US thinking $90-$150 pair of levi's is a steal! why wouldn't they.. it's twice that or more in japan. you can't estimate just how cheap this stuff truly is until you stop thinking american dollars. make friends with a poor/blue collar native. have mint tea and discuss arab culture and mention you enjoy arguileh.. then get into prices. it's so cheap, even the impoverished enjoy arguileh.. it's perhaps the one thing the poor still can. but don't delude yourself to thinking "fair." have you heard of stories about trading a pair of levi's for working automobiles in eastern europe? that's fair isn't it. in fact.. what a deal!

i suspect by the time you leave there, you'll have a much better idea of pricing. i'm interested to know your perception then : )

I'm sure these guys are still making money, no question. I'm happy to pay what I have been but would sure like better discounts as time goes on. They don't seem to want to deal too much with the Bohemian glass but I'm just starting to get in the door with them. We have had good success with the carpet guys over here as repeat customers. Hookahs are exceedingly cheap compared to those works of art.
