The EBC81 is a double diode triode with the triode designed for audio amplification. The diodes share the same cathode as the triode and would be used for signal detection and AGC rectification. This exhibit was made in Holland by Philips.
The screen obscures the inner detail. The triode is at the top with the diodes below. The triode anode is a bright plate on only one side of the cathode.
The thin glass tube envelope is 20 mm in diameter, and excluding the B9A base pins is 52 mm tall.
