Aluminium and Brass Brutalist Style Bowl by David Marshall (Circa 1970s)
This very large aluminium and brass brutalist style bowl is a stunning piece. Its solidity and heft are reassuring and its tactility, sensuous. The maker's mark is impressed on the inner surface of the higher brass handle. The bottom has the trademark leather base also with maker's mark somewhat faded. Overall this piece is in excellent vintage condition with characterful marks consistent with its fabrication, age and usage.
