Arsené Margaine

For   a   comprehensive   history   of   Margaine   and   his   clock   making   business   see   Antiquarian   Horology,   the   journal   of   the Antiquarian   Horological   Society,   June   2014,   pages   807   to   826   inclusive;   The   Horological   World   of   Francois   Arsené   Margaine    by Tom Wotruba. Francois Arsené Margaine was a fine carriage clock maker who worked in Paris at rue Bondy, 54 having had various addresses in the city. He bought his blanc roulants from both Saint Nicolas d'Aliermont and the Franche Comte. Charles Valogne I   am   still   undertaking   further   reserach   on   Valogne   but   initial   work   shows   that   he   was   a   close   associate   of   Alfred   Drocourt and worked with him on exporting clocks to England, especially those retailed by dent of London.
