(Received 18 February 2004 / Accepted 11 May 2004)

We present a spectroscopic investigation of two hitherto unstudied galactic planetary nebulae (MeWe 1-10 and MeWe 1-11) and one candidate object (MeWe 2-5). The candidate object clearly has been identified as a bipolar hourglass-shaped PN. The galactic foreground extinction was derived and using photoionization models with CLOUDY the two round objects were classified as highly evolved nebulae.

Key words: ISM: planetary nebulae: individual: MeWe 1-10, MeWe 1-11, MeWe 2-5
