Judy Jones is a direct importer of European antiques and is an ardent supporter of the Round Top Antiques Fair. She feels the Plaid Veranda has found a second home and family at Market Hill.

“This is truly a labor of love. No one in their right mind would work this hard otherwise!” she says.

Here, Judy shares with us the details of her favorite pieces she’s bringing to the fall show.

“There is a pine piece. An old French sacristy for the church. It was used to store liturgical garments and robes and things for the priests. It would be really good for an artist for drawings. Or for maps.”

She is also bringing a large white cabinet that she says is circa-1900; a pediment, also French, circa 1870;  a pair of sunburst lit sconces from France, circa 1940; and an eye-catching sofa, one of our favorite pieces of hers.

“The sofa is Tito Agnoli, a famous Italian designer. Some of his pieces are in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art.”

She also brings a table with interesting design features.

“This table is a fun industrial piece that raises and lowers on a spring.”

She says, “The countdown to the fall show is on.”

Judy Jones is showing at Market Hill, the Compound, and at her barn by appointment.
