Frederic Pierre Jonte started his photography business in 1860.

The company was manufacturing some of its cameras, but they also sold a lot of models produced by other manufacturers. F.Jonte was closely working with several other entrepreneurs, and cameras were marked with various names.
In the beginning, c1868, cameras were produced with Jose Maria Domenech.
Later, c1876-1885, M.Brandon was involved in the business, which got reflected in some camera advertisements.
Close to the end of Frederic's career, his business had two other partners, and was divided between two establishments: Jonte & Monti (c1890-1894) which became Charles Monti, and Jonte & Deloye (c1889-1910). After Jonte's death (1890), Charles Monti also tried to work with Mr. Deloye, and there are several 1894 references to Monti & Deloye company. At the same time, Mr. Deloye was also designer for his other company Devaux & Deloye (c1906-1908), where Mr. Devaux was manufacturing cameras. Interestingly, Jonte lenses were still used in these cameras.

In 1910 Jonte & Deloye company went bankrupt, ending almost 50 years of original Jonte's endeavor.
