Josef Dieudonné Kinable was born around 1764 near Ivoz-Ramet close to Liège. He went to Paris in 1781, where he was apprenticed as a watch and clockmaker and also worked during the French Revolution. Kinable was best known for his mostly lyre-shaped clocks decorated with Sevres porcelain. He signed his clocks "D.D. Kinable", later just "Kinable". The dials were mostly by Joseph Coteau (1740-1801) or Etienne Gobin (Dubuisson) (1731-1815).
Dieudonné Kinable died on October 10, 1832.
Some of Kinable's works are in the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace, in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs François Duesberg and the Walters Art Museum.
