Aluminium and Brass Candlestick by David Marshall (circa 1980s)
A single aluminium and brass candlestick by David Marshall (circa 1980s). Very unique piece which is all at once weighty and tactile, curvy and sensuous. The maker's signature is impressed on the aluminium surface near the brass side. The underside of the base retains Marshall's trademark leather cover. This piece is in fair vintage condition with characterful marks and some blemishing consistent with age and usage.
