Boasting the largest collection of treasures in Europe, Dresden's Green Vault is also among the continent's oldest museums, founded in the early eighteenth century. Since its extensive restoration and reopening in 2006, it has attracted more than three million visitors who have come from around the world to admire the splendid architecture and opulent riches on display there.   Packed with beautiful full-color illustrations, this magnificent volume highlights a selection of masterpieces from this important collection of Baroque and classical art, including the Golden Coffee Service, the Ivory Frigate, the Dresden Green Diamond, the Royal Household of the Grand Mogul, and many other fascinating objects made of gold, silver, gemstones, and other precious materials. For those with an interest in the Baroque or classical periods--or those who simply enjoy exceptional works of art--this book will be a great pleasure.

The leading synopsis on this page is for a different book - not river of heaven by lee martin. It sounds like a non fiction book on museum pieces.

"Haunting and beautifully wrought, River of Heaven weaves a story of love and loss, confession and redemption, and the mystery buried with a boy named Dewey Finn."
Can't wait to read his other books!
