François-Alphonse DEBAIN registered his punch "a basket and two little fellows" on January 15, 1847 and moved to 140 rue du Temple. He renewed it on July 19, 1851. The hallmark was crossed out on May 27, 1864.

His son, Alphonse-Édouard DEBAIN succeeds him, uses the same symbol and associates with Louis-Frédéric FLAMANT, working under the name of Debain & Flamant.

In 1883 the son of Alphonse-Édouard DEBAIN, Alphonse DEBAIN, succeeded the goldsmith Philippe BERTHIER. He uses the symbol of his punch, the woodcock, for his own punch which becomes "AD and a woodcock", registered on March 19, 1883. He moved to 79 rue du Temple when Louis-Frédéric FLAMANT took over the business from 140 rue du Temple.
Out of business : March 8, 1911.
