Vintage Aluminium and Brass Bowl by David Marshall (circa 1980s)
Aluminium and brass bowl by David Marshall (circa 1980s). A stunning piece, its solidity and heft are reassuring and its tactility, sensuous. It's craggy, asymmetrical and brutalist - absolutely splendid. The maker's mark is impressed on the inner surface of the brass handle. The underside has the trademark leather base (somewhat faded). Overall this piece is in good overall condition with characterful marks consistent with its fabrication, age and usage. It has been cleaned and polished. Upon request a video of the piece may be provided.
