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.
David has been commissioned by dozens of corporations to make pieces individualised for their purposes. This beautiful aluminum and brass business card tray was authorised by BEX, Banco Exterior de España for their meeting called the 'Junta General Extraordinaria Septiembre 1991'. This was probably an exclusive executive gift for those that attended the session named on the tray. The maker's mark is impressed on the surface in the upper righthand corner. The bottom has the trademark leather base also with maker's mark in excellent condition. Overall this piece is in excellent vintage condition with characterful marks consistent with its age and usage. Quirky and collectible. Made in 1991.
