Froment-Meurice was hugely successful at exploiting the international expositions of the 1840s and 50s to gain a large international clientele and a widely fashionable reputation. Only days after his death in February 1855 a contemporary journalist, Jules Janin, noted that, among others, the Tsar of Russia, the Pope and both Queen Victoria and Prince Albert owned works by Froment-Meurice.


In the course of her many visits to the Great Exhibition Queen Victoria made at least four calls at the stand of Froment-Meurice, one of the most successful goldsmiths and jewellers in France, who was once described by Victor Hugo as the Cellini of his age. One of Froment-Meurice's strengths was stylistic versatility. He is perhaps best known for Renaissance and Gothic revival pieces, but his naturalistic works also won high praise. He won a Council Medal at the Great Exhibition and became well known in England. Prince Albert spent £70 5s. on oxidised silver articles from his stand while Queen Victoria noted ‘some fine pieces of jewelry executed by M. Froment Meurice from whom we have bought some things’; she purchased ‘some trifles’ from the stand in October.

The name derives from the early origins of Policing when A Warranted Bailiff or Constable would apprehend a criminal with the help if necessary of a tipped staff. The staff would be made of wood or metal and were not only a means of self defence but the tips of the staffs would bear symbols of their authority
