Philippe-Joseph Pluvinet, a Parisian joiner, became a master on July 14, 1754 and shortly thereafter set up his business on the rue de Cléry where he remained until his death in May 1793. He made a name for himself in the production of luxury seats.

Louis-Magdeleine Pluvinet, in all likelihood the son of Philippe-Joseph, became a master on April 19, 1775 and opened his own workshop on the same street—the rue de Cléry. He died between 1782 and 1785. The works signed with his mark are in no way less admirable than those of Philippe Pluvinet.
