Abstract: MWC 137 is an object with a strong emission-line spectrum associated with an 1′–size H II region Sharpless 266. It was included in a catalog of planetary nebulae in 1967, in the first list of objects with the B[e] phenomenon in 1976, and in a list of Herbig Ae/Be stars in 1984. A recent analysis of the stellar and nebular spectra of MWC 137 by several authors suggested that it is most likely a B[e] supergiant located at a distance 4–6 kpc away from the Sun. No high-resolution spectra of the object have been published so far. We present the results of our analysis of high-resolution optical spectra of MWC 137 obtained in 2004–2016 and UBVRI photometry.
