Joseph Botzleiner Judging from this clock Joseph Botzleiner was an excellent and imaginative clockmaker who had a shop in Munich at "Im Tal 5" in 1835. A mantel clock by Botzleiner is owned by the Münchner Stadtmuseum. He was probably a son or even a grandson of the Joseph Botzleiners who, according to Abeler, began his watchmaking apprenticeship on May 7, 1736 in Friedberg.
