Raingo Freres Gilt Bronze Clock
A magnificent ebonized wood and gilt bronze mid-19th century clock signed Raingo Freres, France, circa 1850.
The origins of the company Raingo Frères lie with Zacharie Joseph Raingo (1775-1847), a clockmaker, who was born in Belgium in 1775. Zacharie Joseph Raingo specialized in creating astronomical clocks. One of these creations, a planetary pendulum clock made in 1824, was purchased by King George IV of England and is now housed in Windsor Castle.
