After not finding any Hildred Reents pieces in quite awhile, we came across two in short succession. One was the quail above that we’d already found previously, spotted at a Goodwill. I ended up not buying it because it had damage to the top of head, and plus we’d already found this one. An interesting thing is that we also saw a couple smaller baby birds that may have been Hildred’s bundled together in a bag. Those weren’t marked, however, and I think at least one was a Roselane piece that Hildred didn’t do. They were also all damaged, or I would’ve taken a chance and got them.
The other piece we came across was at a flea market. This is a rabbit done by Hildred Reents - I’ve seen it before because her daughter had shared a photo of one previously with us. Cute little fellow.
I hadn’t seen it in perrson, so I wasn’t sure but when I picked it up to check the bottom the mark was right there. I think some of her work may go undetected because she often signed with just her first name.
