(Received 23 November 2004 / Accepted 9 May 2005 )

An LTE abundance analysis based on high-resolution spectra is presented for the carbon-rich star BD $+57^{\circ}$ 2161, whose evolutionary status is unknown. With $\rm [C/Fe] =+0.4$ dex and a mean s-process overabundance of $\rm [s/Fe] \simeq +1.5$ dex the peculiar atmospheric composition of BD $+57^{\circ}$ 2161 is confirmed. The 12C/13C abundance ratio was found to be about 10. The mild iron deficiency, $\rm [Fe/H] = -0.2$, supports the idea that BD $+57^{\circ}$ 2161 could be an old-disk-population object. Radial-velocity measurements confirm the binary nature of the star. Therefore the peculiar chemical composition could be due to the mass transfer from the secondary - AGB star in the past. Orbital parameters are estimated for another star of this group, BD $+75^{\circ}$ 348.

Key words: stars: evolution -- stars: atmospheres -- stars: abundances -- stars: chemically peculiar -- stars: individual: BD $+57^{\circ}$ 2161 -- stars: individual: BD $+75^{\circ}$ 348
