I am a single Senior living modestly in Winter Park, Florida. I enjoy a good cup of coffee and conversations with friends. There are three areas of collecting that interest me. First, I am a "serious" collector of ca 1930s Japanese export "Kent Art Ware" marked ceramics and have a website devoted to it. Second, I avidly collect English, primarily Staffordshire, salt-glazed 18th Century white pottery and creamware. And third, I collect Wall Masks primarily made by Goldscheider and Cortendorf. I love to chat about antiques and would love hearing from other members.
