Default Calling for expert opinions on hookah identity

Alright guys, I'm in need of your professional and immense banks of hookah knowledge. My friend's dad bought this hookah in Tunisia some years ago and is looking to sell it. I've already come to my own conclusion about it, but I'd like to hear what you think about it and what you think it might be worth.

The bowl is small and permanently connected to the stem. The stem is very light and hollow. There is no purge valve and the hose stem is very narrow and has no grommet. As there is no purge valve, the chamber is traditional. It comes with a windcover and has a cobra head hose.

It's tough to say... With a metal bowl, fixed to the stem... No purge.. I wouldn't pay more than 60 for it, including the wind cover and hose... COMPANION CUBE!

It's locally made but since I am not knowledgeable about Tunisian narghiles I can't say much other then the hose is a nice example of local craftsmanship. The downtube is brass and the main stem is spun metal style construction. It's odd to have a permanently attached bowl and the bowl it self is odd and I am not sure what it's meant to be used with.

He did say the person who sold it to him claimed it was hand made, and I don't doubt that, especially with the obvious welds.

I was confused about the bowl as well. It seems so small that almost an insignificant amount of tobacco would fit into it. Because it's attached, cleaning the stem and bowl would be difficult. I thought maybe it would be more for tombac or something where the coals are directly on it, but I don't have any experience with that kind of smoking other than what I've read on here.

why do the welds make you doubt that it's hand made?

KMs claim to be handmade and have visible welds....

I said I DON'T doubt that it's hand made because of the welds. They're just more obvious on this one that most of the KMs i've seen.

I'd be suspicious if there weren't any.
