Lovely older hookah, the brass part only, decorative work all over the bulbous part, believed from India, nice heavy weight quality brass. This had been made in to a lamp when we found it, and we removed the old worn out lamp parts to restore it to the lovely piece it is, original state. It would of course make a wonderful lamp again, but we think it stands alone as a lovely decorative. Great Middle Eastern look. It measures 16" tall and the base is 9" across. Beautiful piece.
