Joseph Coteau (1740-1812) was possibly the most famous enameller of his day, supplying dials for the great clockmakers of France. Born in Geneva he became maître-peintre-émailleur at the Académie de Saint-Luc in Geneva in 1766. By 1772 he was installed in Rue Poupée, Paris. Coteau is celebrated not only for his dials but also as a skilled miniaturist. He discovered a new method for fixing raised gold on porcelain and worked closely with the Sèvres factory in developing their 'jewelled' porcelain.
Presumably Florent Le Comte. Recorded as in Rue du Bourg-l'Abbé in 1772 and as working for Charles Le Roy. He was made bankrupt in 1775 and moved to Enclos St Martin des Champs.
