Aluminium and Brass Brutalist Style Tray by David Marshall (Circa 1970s)
Aluminium and brass brutalist style tray by David Marshall (Circa 1970s). This tray is different than many of Marshall's works in that it is symmetrical overall rather than organically irregular. The brass handles at the ends visually uplift the aluminium structure and are complemented by the serrated cross shape in the centre. The maker's mark is impressed on the aluminium edge. The bottom has the trademark leather base also with maker's mark in pristine condition given its age. Overall, this piece is in excellent vintage condition with characterful marks consistent with its fabrication, age and usage.
