Jeff is a well known maverick art and design dealer, and has been working in the trade since he was 17. With more than 40 years experience in the business, he owns Decoratum, comprising two of the largest galleries in Europe specialising in 20th and 21st century design.

He first realised he had an eye for a good deal when he started working at Sotheby's, going on to set up his own business specialising in art nouveau and art deco glass by the time he was 24.

Decorative and unusual items are what Jeff gets particularly excited about, and his favourites include a Diamond Dust screen print of Marilyn Monroe, a massive 1936 Boeing Engine Table and a unique multifaceted sideboard made from hundreds of lacquered blocks. With gallery prices ranging from £1000 up to £250 000, Jeff is prepared to spend big money.
