A NORTH INDIAN BRONZE HUQQA IN THE FORM OF A MANGO, 18TH ~ 19TH CENTURY.
It is believed that these small water pipes were made to be used by ladies and of course the diminutive size meant that they were easily portable. The mango shape fits nicely in the hand. The bronze is darker in tone than my photographs suggest.
Approximately 5.3/8 inches (13.7 cm) high. Overall light wear. Although the casting is substantial one oval panel has been slightly depressed. Please study the photographs.
I am based in the United Kingdom so charges made to credit cards are in GBP ( British Pounds ) and your credit card issuer automatically converts the charge to the currency of your country. Payment may also be made by direct bank transfer in GBP as long as all fees are paid by the sender. I am sorry but I cannot accept a cash transfer payment by Western Union as I donít have an office nearby.
