These boxes are based on the 19th century “strikethrough” design where the ground glass has a direct downward pressure applied to it to ensure a good seal to contain the chemicals. The pressure release lets the carrier slide easily across the glass dish and removes the plate from the environment of the fuming box immediately, which gives a more accurate amount of exposure to the fumes.
