Featured Items"Wicked" Signed Cookbook and Signed Playbill with Publicity Card - $79 [SOLD]
While Rue was playing Madame Morrible in the hit Broadway Musical “Wicked,” the cast and crew released a second edition of their charitable cookbook. Rue included a questionable recipe from her Aunt Wenonah that actually involves pouring a can of 7-Up into a baking dish with dough! We made it, and guess what? It is delicious! Anyway, the cookbook is signed by Rue and we’ll include an original signed playbill and publicity card, too. It measures 5.75″ x 8.5″, is 131 pages long, and contains over 65 recipes. Comes with a 4″ x 6″ print of Rue on stage with Ben Vereen as The Wizard – just because we love that picture – and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$79.00Trash Basket From Rue's Home Office
You can see this trash basket on the floor of the home office in Rue’s Manhattan apartment next to Rue and her bestie, Sue. The piece measures 12.5″ tall and is 12.5″ wide, too. We don’t think this was necessarily made to be a trash basket, but that is what Rue used it for. The piece will come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225Sterling Silver Necklace with Amber Heart [SOLD]
Rue had several items made of amber and a thick book all about this interesting substance. (In fact, We sent the book to one of her devoted fans as a surprise when they purchased Rue’s amber cuff on this site!) This sterling silver chain is 18″ long, and the amber heart-shaped pendant measures a little over an inch high and wide. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225Rue's Bathroom Keychain From Production of "Oklahoma!"
Every production has a different budget, and that budget will determine the quality of the cast and crew perks. As opposed to the Tiffany & Co. engraved sterling silver keychain Rue received for “Six Dance Lessons…” – posted above – when she did a production of “Oklahoma!” she received a plastic keychain with the name of the character she was playing on it. Rue attached a elastic band to be worn around one’s wrist and then attached the bathroom key to it so she wouldn’t loose it or forget it inside. She even wrote a note on the back to warn people looking for a memento of their own not to take it! Rue’s “Aunt Eller” keychain comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50Rue's Framed Vincent van Gogh Lithograph
This print is entitled “Cafe Terrace at Night” and it was painted by Vincent van Gogh. We have no idea what this framed print is worth. Rue bought it along with a Latrec lithograph at a gallery in Manhattan, but it is still just a print, right? Although the Latrec print, because it was signed, was recently valued at $6,000, so who knows? Anyway, this piece hung in the rental Rue moved into when she first moved back to Manhattan – she needed some art to cheer the place up and that was why she visited the gallery and bought the two pieces. Later, it went with her to both Manhattan apartments she owned and it hung in the main hallway of her final apartment until her death. The piece measures 32″ x 26.25″ and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$450 NOW $225Rue's Amethyst and Crystal Necklace
Rue’s amethyst and bead necklace has a very substantial, expensive feeling to it. Although it is not marked, we suspect it was made by that jewelry designer Rue adored, the one whose name we do not know, but we find her initials – “A.R.” – all over pieces in Rue’s jewelry collection. This necklace has 16 diamond faceted rocks of amethyst that measure almost a half an inch across each, and the 32 smaller diamond shaped stones that bookend the larger ones may be amethyst too! The whole necklace is 32-inches long and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
