Mood: Possessor of a tidy and organised lab. Now to mess it up again.

That last one is particularly weird. Some kind of jacketed reaction vessel. But I can't imagine what the connections are. The orientation of the ground joints seems strange. Maybe rotate 90° to the left. Powder input on the side and then stoppered. Addition of liquid and temperature measurement via the ground joints. Excess solvent or liquid product drains through stopcock. But these are just guesses.

First one looks like a gas drying tube. Bubble chlorine etc through H2SO4. Setup allows for system to be drained without disassembly. But I am not sure what the spherical bulb is for.

Middle one is a kind of jacketed beaker. But the wide ground glass opening is a bit interesting. Maybe just a lid. Maybe designed to work with another equally strange piece of glassware.

Visited an estate sale this morning. Seen this broken item

It looks like a plate still, with 1 ground glass joint at the base and an open top
Bottom plate has a glass mesh, middle and top plates are bubblers.
Not sure if its just a gas scrubber or if they went all out making a bong

Any suggestions?

A Hell to clean it!

I do believe you bought yourself a very dirty bong!
