FRENCH ALG GUILLOUARD (Brothers Adrien & Louis Guillouard)
'MARINE' Model. *As of June/July, 2016, the company ALG has closed its doors. No longer in business.
UPDATE 2/8/2019: It has been brought to my attention that ALG has resumed business and is now selling lanterns again.
Circa 1940 - 1950's

Thank you for that updated information Jon. I hope the quality is still present in the lantern.

I bought a brand new Luciole from them recently, the only model available. Sadly for Francophiles production has been moved to Slovakia.

Hello fellow Frenchman,
Thank you for the update. They did go out of business in 2016, but must have gotten new financing to resume again.

Guillouard still exists and has even put on producing !!! What makes you write that they are no longer in business ? Have a look here:
Kind regards from France
