The EL12Spec was made by the Czechoslovakian manufacturer Tesla. It is an Audio output pentode and the naming convention of EL12 follows the Philips/Mullard principles. So we also know that this valve has a 6.3 Volt heater.
See also EL12N for a later implementation of the basic specification.
The footless base is a continental that is rarely seen in UK made equipment.
The classic envelope is 44 mm in diameter and, excluding the Footless base pins, is 117 mm tall.
Reference: Datasheet. Type EL12Spec was first introduced in 1940.
