My name is Lionel Martyn Watney.
I was born 79 years ago in the U.K.
After a very active life it has been somewhat difficult to adopt a different lifestyle, since having heart surgery 4 years ago.
However, I have found new momentum since becoming computer semi-literate, and having dealt on eBay.
I now have Broadband and can use Skype to call anywhere in the world, most of the time completely free of charge.
I have tried to pay attention to more unusual collectables, mainly because there are so many fakes in the popular items, such as Mary Gregory or Cranberry glass.
I have chosen to examine unusual glass, such as Murano Aventurine. Also unusual pottery such as Australian Barambah. I will give details of such items in the weeks ahead.
I hope you might find some of the articles on the site interesting.  If you can't find what you're seeking in the main menu above, you might like to try the search page.
I am proud to say my elder brother, Dr. Bernard Watney, who sadly passed away in 1998, was a very good and kind brother to me when we were both at boarding school at Monkton Combe in Somerset, U.K.
