Deverberie counts among the leading Parisian clockmakers at the turn of the 18th to 19th century. In his workshop he did not limit himself to the production of the clock movements, instead also designing many clock models. Many design drawings preserved in the Cabinet des Estampes der Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris exist to evidence this.
Pendulum clocks by Deverberie are located among others in the Musée des Arts Decoratifs in Paris and in the Palazzo Pitti in Florence.
