Empoli Cased Glass Identification Guide + Gallery

Back to Glass Encyclopedia Home

Empoli Cased Glass became popular during the 1950's + 60's, when Empoli glass manufacturers moved away from the traditional green "Verde" glassware, and began producing brightly coloured glass cased glass in a layer of clear glass, sometimes also having an internal layer of opaque white "Lattimo" glass. Some Empoli producers of cased glass are STELVIA, Cristalleria Fratelli Betti, Cristalleria Arno, CIVE, and SAVIA.
