The four UV base pins.
Using the microscope and looking through the glass at the base the horizontal electrodes can be seen. The anode is an open cylinder and the grid is a wire helix.
At a different angle the single strand filament comes into view. It sags as it has failed.

The wide glass tube envelope is 35 mm in diameter, and excluding the UV base pins is 80 mm tall.
