His creations combining an extreme artisanal precision with a very deep mineralogical knowledge, his little golden snuffboxes encrusted with semiprecious stones, but above all this, his Table de la Paix of Teschen have built the undisputed reputation of Johann Christian Neuber (1732-1808).

This volume, the second one since 1930 on this topic, highlights the work of a goldsmith from the Europe of Enlightenment. Beyond the borders of his native Saxony, Neuber delights the European courts by serving arts with science. A team of historians, art historians and scientists under Alexis Kugel's direction introduces erudition, tolerance and the technical European know-how of the end of 18th century.
