Lachenal & Co.

Lachenal & Co. was a British firm producing concertinas from approximately 18501936.[1] The firm was founded by Louis L. Lachenal (c. 18211861), a Swiss emigrant to the United Kingdom, who arrived there in 1839, and by 1844 was working in support of the famous Wheatstone concertina firm before founding a supporting contract firm and by 1858, an independent firm.[2]

Lachenal's innovations in concertina production led his company to become one of the most prolific concertina producers of the era.[3]
