Aluminium and Brass Brutalist Style Tray by David Marshall (c. 1970)
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.
This aluminium and brass brutalist style tray is both substantial and tactile with the maker's mark impressed on the surface near the handle. The bottom has the trademark leather base also with maker's mark somewhat worn. This piece is in excellent vintage condition with characterful marks consistent with its age and usage.
