comment NA FABRIC A 14171Z. NA FABRIC C. NA FABRIC C.
The implication is that Tornos was the slave of Vocari. The firm possibly shared a die-cutter with Dannomaros. A potter Tornos certainly worked alone using 1-line dies but they were cut by a different hand. Similarly, a potter Vocara P26 also worked alone and used both 1-line and 2-line dies produced by a third die-cutter..
