Johann Conrad Felsing was originally born as Johann Conrad Voelzing, the clockmaker changed his name to Johann Conrad Felsing upon moving to Berlin. He was born in the Black Forest, where the family Voeltzing had produced clocks since 1733. In Berlin, Fesling founded his own company Conrad Felsing, which was soon appointed court clockmaker. In 1847 Felsing became a member of the guild. His son Albert Karl Julius Felsing later took over the company located at 24 Unter den Linden, Berlin. Conrad Felsing was the clockmaker to Kaiser Wilhelm (King Wilhelm). He was made a Knight of the (Prussian) "Kronenordens IV. Klasse."
