That might be a well and truly baked vacuum tube that picked up impressions of the internal components when it was molten.

Can you make out any lettering around the base ?

Possibly from a radio receiver.

That melted tube is really cool, it must have been in a fire and, as the name implies, it has a vacuum inside and when it melted the vacuum pulled the glass into it making a perfect impression of the internal components.

Does that have an E embossed on it? I dont think its a vacuum tube although it sure resembles the metal insides of the one posted. . I think the opening is too large.
