The Cabrier family were a celebrated dynasty of Huguenot clockmakers who settled in London. Three generations of Charles Cabriers became well known for their beautiful clocks.
The clock shown was made by Charles Cabrier (II). He became master of the Clockmakers’ Company in 1757. Charles worked out of 79 Broad Street London and rose from apprentice clockmaker in 1719 to Master of the London Clockmakers’ Company in 1757.
