Default What have we here?

Found this little gem at a tractor show of all places. I paid 95 bones for it. Ive been trying to figure out what it is but still dont know. It definitely has some age yet it smokes like a dream. It has one of the most beautiful bases Ive ever seen. I wish it was bigger so I could put Oxica on it because I want him to have a dark blue base. From what I see the stem is brass and I believe it has a copper downstem. The gauge is narrow and restricted so I was thinking something turkish maybe? But then I realized this has a purge which isnt a part of a turk. However the bottom of the downstem has the hex nut shaped bubbler so then I started thinking old KM since Ive seen older KMs with that kind of bubbler. The tray rest has engravings of two pharaohs lookin at each other.

if you could clean up that tray rest a bit that'd help out a bit I see two pharoahs looking at each other, some flowers above them, and I can't tell what the bottom is.

Ive been through and cleaned out all the ports and openings. Its in great smoking order. Performance wise it rivals "Oxica" (my creamica). Can you thing of a particular brand gordy?

I almost want to say it looks like an old kwank or ghia(I've only seen these at an old man's lounge and am not sure how to spell) but the octagonal tray has been whored out from tariq and megahed to modern kms and everything in between. Maybe get serious and acid bathe that tray rest for me. WHERE IS MY GNOME? I call thee!

The style desighn overall does not look a like a Tariq to me. (might be wrong on that)
The pahronic heads dont look like the "sharper" el khawanky headdress'ed heads. But, they have many emblems they use.

...now, KMs have used inner facing pharaohs,

But. your pharaohs are wearing different headdresses.
And i think our other real key to unlocking might be the unusual (quite non-KM) open dogwood-like flowers.

also, often the "brand" is also written on the hose port.

The brand is written in ruq'aa on the tray rest- The only thing I can read is "leah", but there's more there. If you can't get it cleaned, try doing a rubbing of it.

Gnome those aren't pharaohs in the second picture- it's a profile image of NefernefruAten Nefertiti ("exquisite are the allures of Aten, the resplendent one has come"), queen consort of IkhnAten ( "advocate of Aten", formerly known as Amenhotep IV).

DERP


well i still think a key to figuring this out (as well as the name lol) is the
different headdresses & open dogwood-like flowers.

They're the same brand, but I still can't make out the second-to-last letter.

I'll try and get a better picture up tonight, or do a rubbing- btw, the image across from Nefertiti seems to be a gorpy cluster of Palm trees
