Johann Christian Neuber (1736-1808) was a goldsmith and mineralogist at the Saxon Court. In 1769 he became director of the Grunes Gewolbe, the magnificent State Treasury, and was appointed court jeweler in 1775. He specialized in creating small gold boxes, chatelaines and watchcases decorated with semiprecious stones, such as agate, jasper and carnelian. This lavishly illustrated book will give readers their first comprehensive introduction to the master craftsman's oeuvre presenting boxes and other decorative objects". (source: Nielsen Book Data)
