Alix Gueissaz, 1817-1900
In 1848, Switzerland adopted a new constitution and became a federal state. The same year, Alix Gueissaz, a farmer with a strong and dynamic character, began manufacturing music boxes in his workshop at L'Auberson, near Sainte-Croix. Today, Alix's great-great-grandson, Pierre-André, devotes all his energy to perfecting the know-how accumulated over five generations. Since the COVID epidemic in 2019, it has completely reoriented its manufacturing towards a 100% production in Sainte-Croix. The latest Heritage Collection is the result of a new collaboration with Luigi Mondia, craftsman in Sainte-Croix.
