name1 Vocara '
name2 Vocari
comment Uncertain identification, possibly the potter of the workshop Tornos/Vocari. Vocara used at least 4 double-line dies none in the formal style of TORNOS/VOCARI but all relatively neat and possibly cut by one of the same die-cutters. Epernay (EP3) reads VOCAR / AVOTI, also at Trepail
The single-line dies were clearly cut by other hands
