Charles-Guillaume Maniere

The son of a Parisian master clockmaker, Manière became a maître in 1778 and continued to be active in Paris between 1778-1812. He had premises, from 1781 at rue des Prouvaires, from 1789 at rue des Merciers, from 1806 in the rue Christine and finally from 1810-12 in the rue Bertin-Proirée.

He was the principal clockmaker to the marchand-mercier, Dominique Daguerre and his successor Martin-Eloi Lignereux, who supplied works of art to George IV when he was Prince of Wales. He also collaborated with ébénistes and bronzeurs, including Pierre-Philippe Thomire and François Rémond, who produced cases for his clocks.
