Brian has it pegged perfectly. My first furnaces were clones of this one and our model was from the workshops in Ames Iowa with Tom McGlauchlin. Crystalites were in fact crematorium bricks and they lasted about a year before throwing stones. It was a top fired 1.5 inch stainless pipe with no head. Quite exciting to light in the first hour.

It is a museum piece and I hope you don't try to restore it. Any of the major glass museums would be pleased to have it.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
