According to 'Carriage Clocks: Their History and Development by Charles Allix' , Richard & Cie was founded in Paris in 1848 under a different name and added a branch in London in 1857. Then in 1867 the branch became Richard & Co. of 24 Cannon Street, London. In France, this would be Richard et Cie. Allix also says that the inscription 'R & Co' without the full trademark probably denotes a clock handled by Richard but not made by them. In addition in 'Clock and Waltchmaker of the World Volume 2 by Brian Loomes it indicates that the London business lasted until 1881.
