Brass and Glass Vase / Wine Bucket by David Marshall (circa 1970s)
Brass and glass vase or wine bucket by David Marshall (circa 1970s). This piece is elegantly rugged, beautifully trodden and irregularly formed. The glass vessel has a rounded bottom fitting snugly into its four-legged brass holder. It is charmingly distressed and therein lies its beauty. Raw, brutal, weighty and alluring. Maker's mark (DM) appears on lower brass circular base. The piece is in fair vintage condition with very characterful wear marks, nicks, dents and cracks consistent with its fabrication, age and usage. Please see accompanying photographs for detail. Upon request a video of the piece can be provided.
