There was also a french frame with a split seat tube, Cyclo24 had one on ebay about 2 years ago. I saved the pictures, but they are on the hard drive of my old computer, which I haven't yet put into the new machine. I think the name began with an F, but I'm not sure I do remember it used either fork blades or chainstays for the lower part of the seat tube.

Fred thank you for the link to the photo. Yes it does look like that and Hilary is right in saying that the frame is fillet brazed, so presumably it is a Salmon. Hilary do you know anything about them -- any good, any value beyond novelty?
