|Description||Copper-flame spills in a bag. These paper spills (for a copper flame) come from a 14-drawer cabinet found in the Herschel family home in the 1950s. The contents of this and a similar cabinet seem to suggest that they were used by successive generations of the family to store specimens, material and apparatus for carrying out experiments. The packaging reads: 'Copper-flame spills (with notes) by ASH /85' The accompanying notes relate to some chemistry experiments he had been trying out.|
