Protecting Time #79/100
Butting up against #80 which has been in the queue for three months. Realizing with each and every clock how precious few are left to make in this series of 100. This clock is unique in that it has 'Krupp' and 'Germany' printed on the lower part of the plate. I've not ever come across a RR Plate with that on it. Rare? Probably not but a first for me and I've handled a few hundred plates. This is one of those earthy pieces, sometimes I'm tempted to be more splashy but I have to follow my instincts with what works with each plate and bauble. There is something dark about the fact that Germany is on this and I've got the clock in a cage. I prefer to think of it as protected as opposed to trapped. The 'cage' is multi colored to match the various orange/umber/gray/blue hues on the plate. Hands are gold and cast a sheen from a distance with the right lighting.
