Brutalist Brass and Aluminium Box by David Marshall (circa 1970s)
Brutalist aluminium and brass box or ashtray by David Marshall (circa 1970s). This brutalist style box is both weighty and tactile with the DM maker's mark impressed on the aluminium cover. The shiny brass middle is stylishly curvy and sensuous rendering the brutalist design just a bit softer. This piece is in very good vintage condition with characterful marks and some blemishing consistent with age and usage.
