Good grief!!!
I thought that I knew most houseplants............................. I do not recognise this at all.

My first reaction was a pelargonium, but not after blowing the pic's up.

Any chance of a far closer close-up of the leaves?

Irrespective of what it was/is sold as, it could be an acer, a bamboo or a dracaena. It could easily be a cheap and cheerful Bonsai - crataegus?

I'm not sure if it helps - but here's a closer look.
I wondered if it was a diseased/mutant form of a plant which has been grown-on and propagated as an unusual cultivar.

LLLOL - many cultivated plants are actually "diseased" as viruses in particular can produce growths that us humans find attractive, not least variegation. Mutants - same logic applies.

That said, the extra pic' doesn't help me..................... although the stems look woody in the fisrt two and succulent/herbaceous in the third.

Are the leaves in any way succulent, or just as you'd expect of most plants.

Pepperomia?
