Description: Pierre Simon was born in 1808 in Mirecourt, France. He apprenticed and crafted bows in his home town until 1838, when he began working in the Dominique Peccatte firm.

Simon eventually acquired the Peccatte workshop in 1848 where he continued to make bows for Vuillaume and Grand frères. In the same year, Simon began working in collaboration with Joseph Henry until 1851 when they parted ways.
