Peter Bofenschen (1763-1830), from Hanover, court clock-maker from 1827-1830.

On invitation from the maréchal-prince Bernadotte, Bofenschen came to the 1806 Exposition des produits de l'industrie française in Paris, where he presented a "pendule très bien exécutée, avec concert de flûte et de piano-forte, pouvant jouer vingt cinq airs au moyen de cinq cylindres que l'on substitue les uns aux autres".

Bofenschen was an expert clock maker and inventor who flourished in Paris between 1780 when he was first recorded and 1813 when he was last recorded working in the Rue de Temple during which time he worked alongside arguably the greatest of all French horologists Abraham Louis Breguet (1747-1823).
