Just over 9 inches high,applied foot and lions head masks,the clear body ribbed with yellow and white stripes,have a ruby vase with the same applied pieces,if not Barovier it has to be Italian,I think :spls:

Very interesting lamp you have there.  I do believe it is Murano in origin.  The lion prunts are the symbol of Venice (Winged lion of St. Mark)  http://europeforvisitors.com/venice/articles/winged_lion_of_st_mark.htm

I would love to see your vase also if you don't mind posting it.  Does it also have the lion prunts on it?

Looking over the pics again.  I am wondering if your lamp may be by Fratelli Toso perhaps.  Others may differ.
