Jo Roberts Biography
Jo Roberts (born Josephine Roberts) is a dealer of decorative artefacts, artist and antiques dealer on BBC’s The Bidding Room. She originally trained as a teacher, then became a mum before returning to education as a mature student and becoming an artist. With no intention of changing her career, her creativity and intuition took over and she became a dealer of decorative artefacts.
The dealer refers to herself as a Purveyor of Decorative Artefacts, saying: “Words, particularly unusual words, have always been important to me.
“A Purveyor, because I do more than just buy and sell things, I’m a business that provides a service. The customer is not just someone buying something, they are someone to engage with, discuss what they like or need, someone to maintain a relationship with.
“Decorative, well, lets be honest, the vast majority of items that I sell are just that – they are to adorn the house or garden. And these are the items that make that house into a home.
“An Artefact “is an object that is made by a person, such as a tool or decoration, especially one that is of historical interest.” For me, it is the aesthetic of the object , what it is made from, how it is constructed, its history – sometimes known, more often not known – that draws me to it.”
