Glass Pneumatic Trough, Wooden Tripod and Inverted Flask — Use

This apparatus is an alternative form of the conventional pneumatic trough similar to that used by the French Chemist, Antoine Lavoisier, in his 1774 monograph, Opuscules physiques et chimiques. It consists of a glass jar containing an inverted collection bottle or flask that is supported by a tripod, and illustrates the somewhat eclectic nature of 18th-century chemical apparatus, when many chemists produced their own home-made varieties.
