We present CCD UBVI observations obtained in the field of the previously unstudied northern open clusters NGC 133 and NGC 1348. We argue that NGC 133 is a heavily contaminated cluster, for which we identify 13 candidate members down to mag on the basis of the position in the two-color Diagram. Membership has been checked against proper motions from Tycho 2, whenever available. The cluster turns out to have a reddening mag, to be pc distant from the Sun, and to have an age less than 10 Myrs. NGC 1348 is a more reddened clusters ( mag) for which we isolate 20 members. The cluster lies at a distance of kpc away from the Sun, and has an age greater than 50 Myrs.
Key words: open clusters and associations: individual: NGC 133, NGC 1348 – open clusters and associations: general
