    I both these vases a long time ago, but would like to know more about them ... are they from Empoli? Mid-Century?

      They are a nice set! I think these would have typically had stickers on them and they have been lost over time.
      I think that the two orange pieces and the red goblet are likely Opalina Fiorentina or similar. I'm not sure about the little red vase, but the carafe really does not look Italian to me.
      Having said that, I'm not an expert - so let's see what others say!

      Thank you Riply206 and racer4four. There is no inscription on the bottom :-( . yes I think it is Opaline. Does somebody knows the differents between Opaline and cased glass??? I tought it was the same :-/ . Is it?

      Opalina Fiorentina is a style of glass from Florence in Italy, of which Empoli and Stelvia were two brands, I think there was more.
      Of course it is cased, but many many other glass manufacturers worldwide case their glass. I guess we make our judgements on whether it is Firoentina glass not just by the casing, but mainly the style. They particularly made glass with stems, often twisted, coloured with white interiors, and clear external casing and stems.
      Of course they made other styles too, and the best way to learn about it is to look at examples.
      Maybe check Ebay for pieces on sale, or look at Google images.
      The Japanese did some glass quite similar but yours looks Italian to me.
      Enjoy your collection!
