- Company, variously known, founded by Claude Camille Rollin (1813-1883), a French dealer in coins, gems and antiquities, and originally active only in Paris. At one point their address was 12 rue Vivienne.
Rollin took Félix Feuardent (1819-1907) into partnership and opened a branch at 27 Haymarket, London, in 1867, and later moved into premises at 10 Bloomsbury Street, WC1 (at other times at no. 6). A W Franks had a close relationship with the firm and used their services in auctions: see Marjorie Caygill & John Cherry (eds), 'A W Franks, 1997, p.79.
After the death of Rollin (Paris, 1883), the firm continued under the leadership of Feuardent and operated under the name of Feuardent Frères at 4 rue de Louvois, Paris, IV. The London office was then managed by Francis A Whelan in (at least) 1886-92. In these years it called itself 'Dealers of Coins, Medals, Gems, Antiquities and Numismatic Books'.
The firm continued in Paris until about 1953. Félix Feuardent was also an amateur daguerreotypist.
