I can't really tell the color of the glass but it is Fenton hobnail.  The shpae is the bottle that they made for Wrisley cologne made into a lamp.

I think they sold the bottles for lamp parts.  I don't think they made the lamp themselves but I could be wrong.

Yes the color of the glass is odd. I thought too it was converted into a lamp at some time. It's multi colored. Amber being the main, the hobnails are what is different. Most have white tips with a very pale lavender color. It's very pretty.
