This is a rare pair of highly modernist, polished brass and aluminium candle sticks by the highly collectible and internationally known sculptor David Marshall, in what is often referred to as the 'Brutalist' genre. These would have been produced in the 1970's when the artist began creating sculptures from recycled metals after he had relocated to Spain during the mid 1960's.
These are referred to as 'Puzzle Sticks', as their two bases are formed to fit into one another. One of them measures 9" tall and the other 8 1/4" tall. Their bases are 4 1/2" and 4 3/4" across respectively. They really are striking and refreshingly different!
The tops of their bases are impressed with initials and they both have his signature leather on the bottom of their bases stamped in gold with his trademark 'dh' and 'David Marshall - Sevilla- Espana', These are both in excellent vintage condition - with a lovely patina. The leather on each base is in very good condition.
