As informed us our friend, world's best specialist in portrait miniatures Dr. Bodo Hofstetter (Switzerland)) it is a work of the same Italian, turn of 19th century miniaturist Selvaggio, whose signed miniature was offered in late 1980s-early 1990s at Christie's Geneva, where Dr. Hofstetter worked as an expert during that time.
We could not find anything about artist Selvaggio. Possibly it was a pseudonym (selvaggio = wild); also it is very possible that he lived in Naples (Neapel) - this miniature is an altered copy after miniature portraits of Lady Hamilton (see Wikipedia) by Neapolitan court artist, Frenchman Nicolas François Dun (1764-1832; see our images nr.7-8 and other works of this artist in our possession)...
We are very grateful to Dr. Hofstetter for his generous help
