Jo Pugh runs antiques dealership Belle and Beast Emporium and trades online and at Maltings Antiques in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire, as well as at fairs.

Among the vintage and antique items offered online is this 3ft 8in (1.12m) high 1970s burnished brass palm tree floor lamp by Parisian design firm Maison Jansen (1880-1989).

Pugh says Maison Jansen was one of the influential interior decorating houses of the 20th century “patronised by royalty, socialites and other luminaries of elite society”.

It is priced at £2495.
