Default 1800's Hookah Smoker

My father collects automatons, handbuilt wind up contraptions, the majority of them are from the mid to late 1800's. One of the ones he most recently picked up is a guy smoking a hookah. You wind up the gears on the side and he actually smokes from the hookah. In the pictures you will see that we put a cigarette in the hookah because it smokes alot and stays lit better than loose tobacco. His head moves back side to side and he has his hookah hose in one hand and a tea cup in the other. It's really cool when it moves because he brings the hose to his mouth and it looks like its drawing on the hose for a few seconds. Then it blows out a huge cloud of smoke. I am going to try and get it on video but he has to help with it because it is worth a fortune. As soon as we both get time, I will try and post a video. The pictures might be a little blurry because we slowed down the shutter speed on the camera to try and get some good pictures of the smoke but it didn't work.

I saw that exact same wind up "toy" on Antiques Roadshow one time. I thought it was really cool!
