Another gold snuff-box by Jean-Baptiste Devos, of 1730/31, engraved with inscription 'Gouers AParis', is illustrated in the exhibition catalogue Dozen om te niezen, Antwerp, Provinciaal Museum Sterckshof-Zilvercentrum, 1996-1997, no. 85, p. 145.
Above catalogue states: 'Daniël Govers became a master in Paris in 1717 and worked for Louis XV, his court and the French nobility. He was listed as Orfèvre ordinaire de la Reine and Marchand orfèvre joaillier de leurs Majestés. However he went bankrupt in 1736 and fled to Brussels in 1737. We know that Gérard Debèche (1705-1777) from Liège, as well as Jean-Baptiste Devos (m 1720->1766) worked for Govers. Govers' boxes are rare and very highly rated.'
