* The Desbois were one of the longest surviving London clockmaking dynasties. Daniel Debois I, who was born circa 1771, was apprenticed to John Johnson in Gray’s Inn Passage. He took over Johnson’s business upon the latter’s death and was active until 1846 when he was succeeded by his son, Daniel Desbois II. The latter continued the business until 1875 when he in turn was succeeded by his son Edwin Desbois who worked until 1917.
This exceptional little clock was almost certainly made by Daniel Desbois I.
