This tube is certainly odd, in that it was made for Thorn probably by Hybec, Toshiba or maybe Panasonic. (Edit: this tube is most probably Panasonic made.) It has the typical Japanese endcaps and etch style. Judging by the logo on the packaging this tube is from the 90s. I found it along with other NOS tubes today in the recycling.

Very unusual. This kind of foam sleeve was certainly used by Panasonic, who made many of the Philips T5’s and Thorn in turn also used to occasionally source T5 from Philips. So perhaps this is an example of double sourcing : Thorn buying from Philips which in turn subcontracted the production out to its own subsidiary in Japan.

Thanks James, that explanation would certainly clear things up a bit!
