The DG7-5 is a small three inch electrostatically focused cathode ray tube. This was probably used for an oscilloscope type instrument. The phosphor is green and this tube came with different colour options for a range of applications.
It is typical of these small oscilloscope tubes that the final anode voltage is of the order of 800 Volts. Normally the final anode is held at + 200 V and the cathode and heater hang 600 V below ground. This arrangement has advantages for driving the deflection plates.

See alsoCV5171 for another in this family of tubes and DG7-32 for the replacement improved low voltage oscilloscope tube.
The end window envelope is 32 mm in diameter, and excluding the B9G base pins is 138 mm tall.
