A maker in Paris about 1750-55. He worked in connection with the Abbaye Saint-Germain, thus gaining certain privileges, it no longer being necessary for him to go through the expensive ceremony of being received into the Corporation of Instrument makers; he was also exempt from taxes.

Label: "Pierre Le Pileur, privilegiez du Roy dans I'abbaye Saint-Germain A Paris, 1754 " ; a similar label is dated 1752-
