I have a Fonotipia question for the list.  

I have a Fonotipia 11 3/4 inch 78, catalog number 5038, that says "Pressed in United States under license from Societa Italiana di Fonotipia - Milan, Italy".  The label is light blue with gold and blue print.  The artist's name, Giacomo Lauri-Volpi, is hand written across the label below the center hole.

I have not been able to find any information about this pressing.  When were these U.S. pressings made?  I am assuming that these are 1922 recordings but I think the record is a bit newer than that.

Best regards,
