Sadly Michael Savage passed away in December 2018, bringing to an end a family business involvement with Northamptonshire which was started in 1905 by his grandfather.
The family is keeping the web site going for the next six months or so to show paintings by Peter Newcombe. If you are interested in any of these please contact us in the usual way and we will pass your enquiry to Peter Newcombe
Michael was third generation of the
family business started by his grandfather in 1905. In those days R.S. Savage and Sons
were purely picture framers but the business gradually evolved with the opening of two
shops in Kettering Road and St. Giles Street, Northampton, selling artists materials,
books, stationery, prints and paintings.
In 1970, after the death of both Michael's grandparents he and his father, Robert, became R.S.J. Savage and Son, and in one of the firms original premises on the corner of Stockley Street and Alfred Street in Northampton, opened a gallery selling both original paintings and prints. They also provided a framing and restoration service not only for the general public but also for some of the large national retailers, and pub and hotel chains.
After Michael's father's death in 1979 and with the upsurge in the Fast Framing market Michael made the decision to concentrate on selling Original Works of Art, providing a specialist restoration service and also a high-quality, bespoke framing service.
In 1995 Michael closed the Gallery in Northampton.
