Aluminium and Brass Brutalist Style Vide-Poche by David Marshall (circa 1970s)
This aluminium and brass brutalist style vide-poche (circa 1970s) by David Marshall is weighty and wonderfully tactile with the maker's mark impressed on the brass surface. There are small handles on the far ends of the brass which frames the shiny aluminium. The bottom has the trademark leather base, somewhat worn. This piece is in fair vintage condition with characterful marks, nicks and blemishes consistent with its age and usage. They only add to the charm of this piece. Upon request, a video of the tray will be provided.
