By Cecie Stainer

Brother of Jean Louvet; also worked in Paris about 1740-85. He chiefly made harps, which he signed "P. Louvet a Paris"; but a five-stringed viol is known, and two hurdy-gurdys, one, dated 1750, is prettily ornamented, the other is in the Paris Conservatoire Collection and has this label: "Fait par P. Louvet, rue Montmartre a Paris, a la Vielle Royale, juin, 1747." He later moved to the rue St.-Denis, and was still there in 1783.
