When was the printer A. Martinez - Barcelona in operation?

I have old Spanish olive oil label, apparently from the 1930s. The printer's name, in small print at the bottom of the label, reads "A. Martinez" (although there is a slight chance that the "A." is actually an "R."). This name is followed by a dash and "Barcelona" and preceded by what looks like T* G*. The "asterisk" looks something like a superscripted yen (currency) symbol. All this is difficult to read because it is printed in black on a dark green background. The brand name of the olive oil is Vulcano.

Do you have a picture of the label?

I can't provide a scan right now, but here is all the printed information on the label: Aceite puro de olivas, Superior, Refinado. VULCANO, marca registrada. Cosechado en las comarcas de Tortosa y Urgel. The label shows the god Vulcan striking iron on an anvil. I hope this helps.
