- Alard fils et Cie is most probably not the maker. Alard was an arms wholesaler. They were distributors of FN pistols and the corresponding holsters & cartridge bags. There are 4 different shot shell closers in this collection with their brandmark and/or name. So they must have dome also something in the gun business.
