Type 6BN6 is a late 1940s 'gated beam' valve in which the electron stream is gated on and off by the grids and geometry of the valve.
The 'electron gun' is to the right of the picture above and the main picture is taken looking directly at the 'electron gun'.
See 6BN6 for more details and the second part of the data-sheet.
The thin glass tube envelope is 16 mm in diameter and excluding the B7G base pins it is 60 mm tall.
References: Data-sheet & Brian Cuff. Type 6BN6 was first introduced in 1965.
