          and made by the earliest domestic clockmaker  in the county of Shropshire from whom work is known to survive today, but it also has a fascinating historical provenance which as a collector I find very desirable and this is what helps to keep my passion alive for these early primitive examples.

Shrewsbury never fail to excite me in one way or another. I do find Savage's early work most interesting, and although many of his early clocks all seem to have very similar features to both his dials and movements - like the goblet shaped collets and iron top and bottom plates for example - they each have their own unique charm and character about them which makes them different to each other and very desirable to a collector. The Richard Savage hooded wall clock illustrated here, came to light recently and does not disappoint. Possibly made from around the late 1680s, it is the most primitive example that I have seen by this interesting early Shropshire maker. It is a rare and exciting find which gives us a further insight into some of  Richard Savages earliest working practises.
