Pair of Brutalist Aluminium and Brass Candlesticks by David Marshall (circa 1990s)
Pair of brutalist aluminium and brass candlesticks by David Marshall (circa 1990s). Very unique pair of candlesticks which are both weighty and tactile, curvy and sensuous. The maker's mark appears underside on the base leather protector. The aluminium body projects upwards with two brass 'wings' of irregular form. Stunning design. Overall the candlesticks are in good overall condition with characterful marks from both production and minor blemishing associated with age.
