Antique Parcel-Gilt and Enamelled Pink Overlay Clear Glass Huqqa

$10,584.02

About

This huqqa (or hookah) is a superb example of the beauty and high quality craftsmanship of Bohemian glassware. The huqqa is decorated with photo-realistic portraits of the Qajar kings, Naser al-Din Shah (reigned 1848-1896) and Mozaffar al-Din Shah (reigned 1896-1907), suggesting that the piece was created for the Persian market. The huqqa is of typical form, with a cup-shaped top on a knopped and waisted stem. This stem is fitted onto a slightly flared bell-shaped base. The huqqa is crafted from clear glass and covered with a white and pink overlay. It is decorated with shaped clear glass panels which are filled with colourful enamel flowers, gilt floral motifs and beads, and portraits of Naser al-Din Shah and Mozaffar al-Din Shah. The pink overlay is parcel gilt with swirling patterns and raised beads.
