Like your furnishing dripping with ormolu and semiprecious stones? Then Johann Christian Neuber is definitely for you. The 18th-century German goldsmith was a favorite of the Saxon court in Dresden, where he created small gold boxes, chatelaines and watchcases adorned with agate, jasper, carnelian and Meissen porcelain plaques. The decorations included landscapes, still lifes and floral motifs done as tiny intricate mosaics.
