Default Look at My New Aqusition

http://www.digitalroundabout.net/Antique/
those are the pics.

I feel like its of Gulf Origin, but I really do not know.

I don't think I'll smoke out of it, I think it will just be an antique.

Looks like a pretty kool pipe. Interesting how the pieces screw together, no grommets, I wonder whats better...The bowl is huge, looks like it could take close to 100g

Looks like you would put the coal right onto the tobacco old school style and maybe put the cover over it like a wind cover? I bet I know who would know...Hajo...

ive smoked out of an older one that had a similar design before, it wasnt molasses, it was coal right on a huge pile of tobacco, i was outside the castle in aleppo, and it kicked my ass.

Wow that looks gorgeously ancient. Any chance you may get it appraised? Be great to know how old it is or who produced it and where. Enjoy it!

The machining on that is wicked. I would probably have to clean it up real good and give it at least one go anyway. (Same philosophy I have with Cameras it is a shame for the working antiques to be sitting on shelves. Not only are they still good but in many ways better. By the way your XT does a nice job.).

I bet that you could pack the bottom of the bowl like you normally would and run the foil down the sides making a sort of seat for the coals. Other wise some old school tobacco would be the way to go.

XTi is about the only digital I have played with to date that I liked very much. It felt a bit more like a film camera than some I have used.

Seems if you clean it out really well there wouldn't be much to fear. The sheer simplicity of the Hookah (again like old mechanical cameras) are simple enough that a good scrub down and a few checks here and there and it should be good as new. Especially with the screw in parts instead of Grommets. I wouldn't think there would be much residue. Though I suppose it makes a nice enough decoration. Just seems a shame. Even if they were using it for illegal substances the only ones of those I know of that would be hard to clean out of a pipe like that would not be smoked in a pipe like that more like a needle.

the other issue was brought up to me via a pm, the inlet for the hose is quite low on the base, making it much easier for water to enter the hose. Its also a very tight gauge, and also a lot of tobacco, I'm just gonna play it safe for now, maybe one of these days I'll try it. I got it for dirt cheap anyhow, I don't feel like its really a waste of money at all.

Great looking narghile. I think that it's Turkish as the bowl looks a lot like the one on my Van custom made. It's not intended for tombac as those sorts of bowls are wide and shallow in my experience and are pretty hard to come by. The only problem with sort of narghile is figuring out how to fill the base and the hose inlet being to low.

Anyhow, I think you need to clean it out and give it a try.
