I'm posting this for a colleague in Denmark:

    When were the framer and gilder Vitaux, Toulouse, France active?

    On the back of a probably Dutch or French late 17th or 18th
    century painting signed "D. oudrie(?)" showing 'A Dog Fighting
    Cats' we on the very loosely woven canvas (still on its original
    stretcher) found  the impression of a stamp with the form of a
    flat oval. Inside the flat, horizontally positioned oval a text
    in capitals is found which reads:

        ET DOREUR

    Can anyone help identifying the framer from Toulouse, when he
    was active and if his stamp was found on other canvases? If so
    it would help us greatly in tracing the paintings whereabouts
    and place it in time.
