Featured ItemsRed and Black Crystal and Bead Necklace [SOLD]
This is another piece from that archeologist/jewelry designer that Rue loved to collect. Do you see those double strands of black beads? Well, a few of them have become single stands along the top of the necklace. We found 6 of the beads, which we will include, but the necklace doesn’t seem to be falling apart or need to be restrung. Perhaps it was just shut in the lid of Rue’s jewelry case or something like that. Anyway, this necklace is 24″ long and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50Original, Signed "Doodle" from Rue's Manhattan Apartment [SOLD]
We probably don’t need to write much about this piece, it speaks for iteself. By now, you probably know that Rue “doodled” – as she called it – all the time. Betty White talks about how Rue used to doodle on “The Golden Girls” scripts on the video she made for Rue’s Facebook page – “The Official Rue McClanahan Memorial Facebook Page.” Rue had some of her more intricate doodles framed and kept them on the walls of her California houses and NYC apartments, and this is one of them. In addition to her elaborate drawings, this particular doodle is special because of the writing Rue did on it, and the intimate peak inside her heart the words reveal. This original work of art, signed by Rue McClanahan, comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$3,500Rue's Williams-Sonoma Heavy Porcelain Platter
This heavy porcelain platter of Rue’s is bigger than you might expect from the photos – it is 17″ long, 6.5″ wide, and it has a 1.5″ high rim around it. There seems to be some discoloration from a long ago buffet spread at one of Rue’s parties – it looks like tomato stains – but it might come out, we didn’t try. The piece was made by Williams-Sonoma and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225 NOW $112.50Rue's Carnival Glass Plate
We tried shooting this plate at all sorts of angles to show the iridescent quality, but you still can’t see it. When you look at this piece and move it in your hands, rainbows appear across the surface. I guess it is just something you need to see in person because it simply will not allow capture with the camera. Rue’s rainbow plate measures 7.75″ across and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$125Old Locket with Something Special Inside [SOLD]
This vintage metal locket hangs on an interesting-type link 18″ chain. The locket itself is etched metal, measures about .5″ x .75″, and is obviously quite old. But what makes this piece particularly special is because of what is inside – there are two little pictures, one of Bea Arthur and one of Rue McClanahan, and they are from the night Rue won her Emmy Award – isn’t that sweet! Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$214.14Engraved Framed Photo from "The Women" - 2001 [DONATED]
Rue loved her role as Countess De Lage in the Broadway hit “The Women.” This original 5″ X 7″ black and white photo was shot on opening night. It was gifted to Rue by the show’s producers in an engraved silver metal 7.25″ x 9.25″ frame. Although it is a little scratched up from years of being handled in Rue’s apartment by just about everyone who walked through the door, the engraving is clear; it reads: “The Women November 8, 2001, Roundabout Theatre Company.” In the photo, in addition to other co-stars, you can see the two Jennifers behind Rue – Tilly and Coolidge. This is a piece of Broadway history here. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
