Default Help need to identify

Hello All

I would like to know,
where it was made ? Persian?
when it was made Early 19th century?
who is the gentleman in the picture?
I was given this by a friend before he passed.
He had no information on this

The picture is on it twice.
It measures 10 1/2' inches tall,
over all height to clay top is 19 1/2' inches
Love the cobalt blue colour.
The metalwork is rough looking,
it measures 13 1/2' inches in length.

Any info would be appreciated
Thank you Bob7

The metal work is not in the best shape,
I think I have the smoking pipe.

Turkish brass pipe, and Iranian (Persian) glass base. Looks mid-early 20th century, the portrait is of Naser al-Din Shah Qajar (king of persia 1848-1896)

I agree with methuDmaN.
How I can see the hose port was torn out whilst the turkish nargile has more neater soldering.

the pipe takes a male bowl, yours is un-glazed clay this is commonly used to retain a flavor build up over time, the practice is called staining or ghosting and i have an unglazed bowl,pipe and leather hose for smoking nothing but Nak DA.

the brass pipe can be polished and will shine like a new penny with a bit of tlc and some elbow grease.

i would clean her up get some tobacco and a cold beer and sit and smoke a bowl in memory of you friend.

This old style bowl is very tiny for the flavor moassel so it's will doesnt work fine. This bowl good for tombak or even short session of salloum/zaghloul.

However, Bob7, you can get general turkish bowl and take very good sessions. In my case is looks like this:
