Bunsen burner, London, England, 1874-1905

The Bunsen burner is named after Robert Wilhelm Bunsen (1811-1899), who inspired the development of the laboratory burner which mixed gas and air before burning, in the mid-1850s. The Bunsen burner is shown here with a Hilger wavelength spectroscope (1981-151). It may have been used to set the spectroscope up for a demonstration.
