A maker in Paris about 1765-90. He was son-in-law and successor of Louis Guersan, and worked at the sign of " Au luth royal" in the rue des Fosses-Saint-Germain-des-Pres, near the Comedie Francaise, where, as his advertisement says, “il fait et vend toutes sortes d'instruments de musique, Savoir; violons de Cremone, violons de sa facon et de toutes sortes d'auteurs; alto-violas, basses et contrebasses," &c. In a five-stringed viol, with a carved neck and yellow varnish, is the label: " Antonius Saint-Paul, prope Comoediam Gallicam, Lutetiae, anno 1772."
