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.

Charles Troedel (1835/6 Hamburg – 1906) (born Johannes Thedor Carl Troedel) was a German-born lithographic printer prominent in Melbourne during the late 19th century. He was apprenticed to his father at the age 13 and at the age of 24, emigrated to Melbourne, arriving in Williamstown on board the Great Britain in 1860.

Trading as Troedel & Co, and from 1910 Troedel & Cooper, his company had close links with many well-known artists of that era. One of his apprentices was Arthur Streeton who was still working for him before being discovered by Tom Roberts and Frederick McCubbin. His name was well known in the printing industry for over 100 years.

In 1863, François Cogné convinced Troedel that a book of Melbourne views would be a financial success. This artwork was ultimately published as 12 monthly subscriptions of 2 views per month and known as the Melbourne Views. A bound copy of the full 24 views is held in the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.

Troedel carried out the lithography for Ferdinand von Mueller's landmark work Eucalyptographia. A descriptive atlas of the eucalypts of Australia and the adjoining islands published between 1879 and 1884.
