Bernard Steinitz, Paris

Catalogue Note

Antoine Crosnier (1732-d. after 1806) signed his dials Cronier or Crosnier and was the son of the menuisier Charles Crosnier. He became a maître-horloger in 1763 and set up his workshop in the Rue Saint-Honoré, and his clients included the Maréchal de Choiseul-Stainville, the Marquis de Sainte-Amaranthe, Prince Belosselsky-Belozerky, the Duc des Deux-Ponts and M. Sollier.

A clock of comparable design with a case by the bronzier Robert Osmond after a design by Gilles-Paul Cauvet is illustrated in P. Kjellberg, Encyclopédie de la pendule française (Paris 1997), p.284 Fig. C.
