This curiously-shaped huqqa derives its shape from the horns of yaks, creatures indigenous to the plateaus of Kashmir. It is thanks to a traveller's account by the Count and Countess de Ujfalvy published in 1883 that we have a description of the existence of such huqqas in Skardo, which were also produced in wood and steel. The overlaid designs vary but usually centre on floral motifs (see Mark Zebrowski, Gold, Silver & Bronze From Mughal India, London, 1997, pp.243-4, nos. 417 & 418).
