This Incamiciato tube table lamp has everything to be an Italian lamp, maybe from Murano. The glass is hand blown in the incamiciato technique from the Venetian Island, much used in the lights of Venini, Vistosi, Leucos, Barovier, Seguso and many others.
Remnants of a label are visible on the base, probably removed when purchased. Also there is a sticker on the bottom with the number 000230 on it.
