Marie-Christine PAVONE Broche Renard Ladyfox Roux Marbré
Elegant and stylish Lady fox brooch by Marie-Christine Pavone. It is made by
hand in 3 layers from an old slab of galalith. The galalith is treated to look

little black balls for eyes and nose. The surface is hard and very shiny. The
lady measures 3 5/8" x 2 3/4" approx. Slab is appr. 3/16" thick. Signed by hand
at the back. Excellent unworn condition.
