This candle lamp, life light, or flower vase is made of cased spatter or variegated lemon glass. Vase has a raised ribbed shell like pattern and rests upon leaf shaped feet of glossy applied crystal clear glass. This is considered double cased glass meaning that the color layers are sandwiched between clear casing layers. The innermost casing layer is a paper thin layer of glossy clear.
The fairy lamp version of this shape was shown in the ca 1895 Hosch catalog page above as Figure 7347. Figure 7348 shows this yellow and white variegated tango decor. Other shapes on the catalog page show similar traits, many with applied decorations.
