An alembic composed of a cylindrical copper tank with a two-litre capacity, with iron handles and a condenser tube.
A circular band underneath protects the two handles.
The tank and condenser tube are joined on one side by means of a truncated-cone extremity and, on the other, by means of an aperture in the form of a dome. They are not soldered together but match each other perfectly through a cylindrical band.
The overall height of the tank is 18 cm, its diameter at the base is 14 cm and 10 cm at the top.
The condenser tube is approximately 55 cm long and has a diameter of 2 cm.
