The Pignons S.A. company was established in 1918, and produced cameras between 1933 and 1990. Most of 'Pignons' cameras were designed by Jacques Bogopolsky (Bolsky) and were hand-made, and relatively expensive – as they still are. In 1996, following bankruptcy proceedings, 'Pignons SA' became 'ALPA of Switzerland' and re- established their manufacturing process.
