Brass and aluminium Brutalist Style Bookends by David Marshall (c. 1970s)
Brass and aluminium Brutalist Style Bookends by David Marshall (c. 1970s). These are weighty, cratered and raw as if plucked right from nature. The brass support pieces meld with the aluminium seamlessly to form the bookends. Standing alone, these are sculptures - works of art in their own right. In excellent vintage condition. The David Marshall trademarks / logos have a less deep impression than normally found on his objects, perhaps uniquely deliberate.
About the Artist: More than fifty years ago, attracted by the climate, light and magnificent scenery, David Marshall left his native Scotland, settled in southern Spain and commenced his artistic career. Inspired by the mountainous surroundings and all the detritus of nature – David developed a thriving design business working with institutional and private clients worldwide (david-marshall.com). His metal works from the 1970s have become iconic and are now seriously collectible pieces.
Dimensions of each bookend:
