A vacuum or Nixie tube.

Now we're getting somewhere.

It is indeed a vacuum tube.

* The unique nature of this particular tube makes it possible to precisely identify it from photo.

Rats!  It's sold out.

I could really use a spoon that drips and a fork without tines.

The truth is... I had heard of it and I had one (of course).

Gave it away ages ago in favor of the Snow Peak Ti utensil set.

Sporks are awful concoctions.

might be a full or half wave rectifier

but it also could be a voltage regulator tube with neon in it.   

edit  :

i must say that it does not look like the 4CX1000A that was in my Collins 30S-1
