Watchmakers. In his workshop, he was not limited to the preparation of the
Movements, but also designed many of his Uhrmodelle itself. Many witnesses today
received design drawings in the Cabinet des Estampes of the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris.
Pendulum clocks of Deverberie are, among others, in the Musée des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, and in the
Palazzo Pitti in Florence
