She suddenly took a wary attitude as she felt something of a snow job about the tapestry's priceless worth and antique value coming on.
What does a snow job mean? What’s the meaning of the sentence?

Here is the context:
A tapestry of indeterminable age hung in the shadows on the wall. Anais stepped closer to view the contents of the tapestry……
"It’s quite beautiful, don't you think?" a man’s voice spoke softly behind her and Anais started out of her transfixed state……
"Yes, it is a beautiful tapestry. Is it for sale?"
Smiling benignly, the man said "No, we lend it out."
Anais stared at him in confusion and surprise. "You lend it out?" she repeated.
"Yes, we lend it out to those who need it." the man stated, his tone very matter-of-fact.
"Why in the world would anyone want to borrow a tapestry and not buy it so they could keep it permanently?" she questioned, her perplexed air obvious.
"Madame, this tapestry is special, very special. It cannot be owned by just one person. It has to be shared among many." the proprietor of the shop explained.
Anais suddenly took a wary attitude as she felt something of a snow job about the tapestry's priceless worth and antique value coming on. She cocked one eyebrow and with almost a knowing smirk, she said, "Please tell me why."

In a snowstorm, the snow can be blinding. Our eyes deceive us, making us think we see things that are either false or really not there.
