VERY CLOSE, Gloriously Gem Encrusted Oval Shaped German Snuffbox. Glass, Gold, Large Diamonds, Rubies, & Emeralds on a Blue Enamel Ground. Berlin, 1765. Metropolitan Museum of Art Collection, The Lehman Collection, NYC. Snuffbox photo & background photo by Christian Orlov. I isolated & retouched the snuffbox image onto this suitable background, by adjusting the lighting & creating shadows, making it appear as though the jewel was photographed in situ.
