Roullet & Decamps was a French toy manufacturing company operating in the 19th and 20th centuries, which specialized in automata. Founded in 1865 by Jean Roullet, the firm took the name Roullet-Decamps in 1889, 10 years after the marriage of the daughter of Jean Roullet to Ernest Decamps, a mechanical engineer by trade. The firm ceased operations in 1995. Collections of their wares are on exhibit to the public in two French museums in Falaise (Calvados) and Souillac (Lot). [1]
