The 14K7 is an all glass triode hexode from 1949 and was designed as oscillator and mixer for superhet receivers. The hexode has a variable μ characteristic so that its gain can be controlled from the AGC line.
The 100 mA heater was intended for universal (AC/DC) sets, and this explains the low anode voltages.
The triode oscillator had to supply a peak to peak insertion voltage of 13 Volts.
Originally B8A based valves had metal skirts with a pressed out locating pip. This is a later type produced with a moulded glass skirt and integral locating pip.
The thin glass tube envelope is 20 mm in diameter and, excluding the B8A base pins, is 54 mm tall.
