Brutalist Aluminium and Brass Vide-Poche by David Marshall (circa 1970s) - Small
Brutalist aluminium and brass vide-poche / ashtray by David Marshall (circa 1970s). This brutalist style tray is both weighty and tactile with the DM maker's mark impressed on the brass lip. The shiny brass middle and edging is stylishly sensuous with curves rendering the brutalist design just that bit softer. This piece is in good vintage condition with characterful marks and blemishes consistent with age and attesting to its interesting history.
