A simple and charming Indo Persian silvered copper Huqqa base. Featuring finely etched jungle animals around the belly with a band of Islamic script, and simple flowers encircling above. The area near the top is extensively worn from years of use. There is also a dent near the top. This is a slightly unusual shape as the hose fitting is built into the nargile itself. It measures 11.5" high by 6" in diameter and weighs 2 pounds.
