FROMENT-MEURICE

The firm of Froment-Meurice was one of the most important French jewellery and silver houses of the nineteenth century.  Founded by François Désiré Froment-Meurice (1802-1855), he was regarded as the premier goldsmith of his day, described by Victor Hugo as the Cellini of his age. He exhibited in a number of International Exhibitions, winning numerous awards.  His clientele was the elite of Europe, including Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.  After his death the firm was managed by his son, Émile (1837-1913), who was an accomplished designer in his own right.  He upheld the status of the firm, continuing to win awards for his displays at the International Exhibitions.
