Yup, that's a glass-encapsulated multi-layer ceramic cap, 
0.1 uF value.  It is definitely non-polarized.
I did see these at one time, I think they were to make the 
ceramic caps more durable.  They are basically the same as 
an SMT multilayer ceramic that would be used today, but in 
an axial lead format.
