This elegant huqqa comprises three parts- a hubble-bubble, a chillum and a stand. Unlike a normal huqqa here the hubble-bubble is at the top and the chillum is at the bottom. The oval-shaped bowl of the bubble consists of two cups joined together which have incised floral designs. It also has a nozzle to connect a pipe. The lid on top is designed as a floral bouquet and has tiny bells on the edges. Delicate floral stems fixed at two levels gives a rhythmic appearance to huqqa.
The munal (mouthpiece) is particularly beautiful and is designed as a heavily ornamented female hand holding lotus bud which serves as a mouthpiece.
