* Charles Cabrier was a third generation clockmaker of the same name, having succeeded his father and grandfather. He was active in London between 1752 until his death in 1777. He was a prolific maker of fine musical table and longcase clocks, especially for the export market to Europe and the Far East. An exceptional pair of musical and automaton clocks in the oriental taste are illustrated in Richard Barder’s book The Georgian Bracket Clock, Colour Plate 27, page 164. These were reportedly made for the King of Nepal.
Provenance: A Spanish noble family.
