Tarault Jeune is recorded working in the Rue Richelieu in Paris in 1830, later in the Rue des Bons Enfants in 1840 and then the Rue du Bac in 1850.
Francis X. Vitale was a chief corporate officer for a multinational chemical company in New Jersey and an obsessive collector of antique European clocks, which led him to become a part-time dealer in his spare time with a gallery in the coastal community of Spring Lake, NJ that enjoyed a reputation as one of the finest collections of timepieces in the world.  In 1996 it was discovered he had defrauded his company of more than $12 million over a period of eight years to support his acquisitions, and his entire stock was seized and auctioned in two sales in New York and London in 1996 as restitution to his former employer (New York Times, October 1, 1997, 'In a Passion for Antique Clocks, Executive Embezzled $12 million').
