Established in the early 1800s, Raingo Frères (Raingo Brothers) was one of the leading makers of precision clocks and astronomical “orrerey” devices during the French Empire and Restoration Periods. The company was based in Paris and run by the four Raingo brothers. The company added bronzes to their catalog, specializing in the reproduction of classic arts, and they also collaborated with renowned contemporary artists such as Pradier, Carrier-Belleuse and Auguste Moreau. They also worked with prestigious cabinet makers of the time, in particular François Linke.

In 1860, this house produced garnitures and table pieces for the apartments of the Emperor Napoleon III (now in the Louvre) and and created a large number of collectors items. La Maison Raingo Frères participated at universal Exhibitions in 1867, 1878 and 1889 and each time obtained medals; a gold one in 1889.

Today, the works of Raingo Frères are part of important private and museum collections worldwide, admired for their inventiveness, aesthetic beauty and precision of manufacture.

Dating from the mid-19th century, this clock has been regularly wound (keys are included) and keeping is good time. We will have it inspected and cleaned by our clock specialists before shipping to ensure it is functioning correctly.
