Me again looking for help. Found this beautiful pitcher and would love to know if it is Italian. It is 9" tall. Thanks!

The form and color look to me like it could be Empoli glass. Maybe Ivo will be along soon to say yes or no.

Thanks Anita! I thought maybe it could be Empoli but I just don't know how to ID Empoli.  I have done some reseach on it but still not good enough to spot a piece. Now that we are on the subject I think I point on another piece of glass maybe it is Empoli also. It is 17" tall and I have looked for hours trying to find an equal. Thanks again for your help.
