Tharin à Paris
Tharin are recorded as Parisian makers of automata and musical picture clocks. There is an example in the Utrecht Fine Art Museum.
Charles Rivière (1848-1920) was an Orlèans born artist who decorated some of these recorded pieces, as well as being a member of the Societaire des Artistes Français, and receiving an honourable mention at the 1900 Exposition Universelle, where he gained a bronze medal. The Fine Art museums of Orléans and Roanne display many of his works.
Also these tableaux were painted by Charles Nivere (1840s).
