Abstract: MWC 349A is a V ∼ 13 mag object with the B[e] phenomenon, a very strong optical emission-line spectrum, maser and laser line emission, and a radio-bright bipolar nebula, attenuated by ∼10 mag of interstellar extinction. MWC 349B is a visual companion of MWC 349A with no previously reported signs of emission. The physical connection of the pair has been the subject of debates toward revealing the evolutionary state of MWC 349A. Only low-resolution spectra reported for MWC 349B resulted in estimating its parameters with a large uncertainty. We report the results of high-resolution optical spectroscopy of both objects as well as their optical photometry.
