THE SELLER WILL COVER SHIPPING WITH REGULAR MAIL FOR THIS ITEM!
This miniature (or its (author's own) replica?) was offered on November 11, 1986 (Lot 222) at Christie's Geneva as a work of Maximilien Villers, executed in "ca.1790" (see our image nr.8). However it is a typical work of another artist bearing (married!) name Villers - of Maximilien Villers' (he was an architector and never miniaturist!) wife (from 1794), Mme Marie-Denise (called Nisa) Villers, nee Lemoine (see our images nr.9-10 with her extensive biography; see also other works of her in our possession).
