This exhibit is a De Forest DV-2 fitted with an Isolantite ceramic base. The V in the type designation refers to the UV base cap and the 2 should represent the approximate filament voltage, however, the paper label shows the filament rating as 5 Volt. This longer label dates from 1925.
Thanks to Joe Gruber for sending the image.
The wide glass tube envelope is 32 mm in diameter and, including the base pins, is 105 mm tall.
Reference: Joe Gruber. Type DV-2 was first introduced in 1923. See also 1923 adverts.
