Seller: ludwikdra-0 (310) 98.6%, Location: salisbury, Wiltshire, Ships to: GB, Item: 323386552230 Very good working Jean-Joseph Robin Followed admirably in the footsteps of his father, Robert Robin, ‘Privileged Merchant-Watchmaker of the King following the Court and Councils of His Majesty.’ A major figure of French horology during the reign of Louis XVI, Robert Robin (1742-1799) had a reputation for excellence that lasted throughout the First Empire and the Bourbon Restoration. The laudatory jury report of the 1819 Exhibition of French Industrial Products (Rapport du jury de l’exposition des produits de l’industrie française), makes known that Jean-Joseph Robin (1781-1856) enjoyed the same status as his father: ‘Mr. Robin fils presented two very finely executed astronomical clocks; He maintains the high reputation earned by his father’s numerous and important works. The jury considers that Mr. Robin is still very worthy of the 2nd class silver medal, equivalent to the bronze medal that he was awarded at the last exhibition’ (Sect.III., ‘Horlogerie astronomique’, p. 251). At the start of his career, in partnership with his brother Nicolas-Robert (1775-1816) under the company name MM. Robin frères, rue Saint-Honoré n°320, Jean-Joseph Robin, instilled early on with a respect for family tradition, transformed some of his late father’s models signed Robin aux Galeries du Louvre à Paris.
