Can any of our European collectors tell me when Flobert and Tillet, a Paris, were in business? This is Flobert the patentee of the Flobert cartridge. Tillet appears to be a business partner for some years. I came across a Flobert box with Flobert and Tillet on the label. Also, I have an early percussion cap resembling the early flobert thick rim cartridge and was wondering when the partnership started and ended.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
