Featured ItemsRue's Amazing Doodle Script From "The Golden Palace"
First of all, as we’ve mentioned before, so many of Rue’s things have coffee stains on them, and this piece is no exception. Second, we love how when Rue was doodling on something that she spilled coffee on she would incorporate the coffee stain into the design. Do you see the way she outlined each mark? Third, this is one of the most intricate of Rue’s script doodles; it takes up almost the entire cover! Forth, and finally, there are only a few of these left. Oh, wait, one more thing – a trivia fact. Margaret Cho, the comedian, made her television debut in this episode and almost 20-years later, during an appearance on “The View,” she talked about how nervous she was and credited Rue McClanahan for helping her and getting her through the experience. That is a young Margaret standing next to Rue at the piano during the filming. Rue’s doodle script from “The Golden Palace” comes with prints of the photos posted and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$2,500 NOW $1,250Rue's Large Fresh Water Pearls [SOLD]
Rue’s large fresh water pearl necklace measures 22″ long, with the knotted pendant hanging down 6″. It is a triple strand that weighs 4.9 ounces. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$350Delicate Beaded Necklace [SOLD]
We believe this beaded necklace is made by the woman who Rue bought most of her beaded jewelry from, and we think that might be her with Rue in the picture. What her name is, we haven’t a clue. Anyway, this 23.5″ beaded necklace is relatively simple and delicate. It has pink and green glass beads, and then what appear to be tiny freshwater pearls or pearl-type beads and then some little gold colored balls. Rue had commented in the past that all this woman’s jewelry was quite expensive – partially because each piece was a one-of-a-kind, but also because of the fine materials she used – so we might be giving treasures away again, but we believe once in awhile a gamble with pricing is in order because the worst case scenario is: one of Rue’s fans gets a great deal on a treasure – and that isn’t a bad thing. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$49.50Rue's Wooden Frog Instrument
Rue loved nothing more than a musical evening with people playing piano and other instruments and singing together while everyone gradually got totally blasted. Oh, wait, we didn’t mean “blasted” necessarily, but you understand. Many of her friends had real talent, too, and could sing like angels and play like virtuoso. Some of her friends however, ahem, like me, could NOT sing a note or play anything, and so she kept percussion instruments around. That way we could be a part of the fun. This carved wooden frog was kept near or on top of Rue’s piano so it was always available to hand to the dork in the corner who couldn’t sing or play. The piece measures 5.5″ tail to nose and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
(By the way, it makes a really cool sound, too, when you slide that wooden stick up and down the frogs back!)
$475Rue's Big Brass Heart Cuff [SOLD]
This brass and enamel cuff has hearts painted on it and so it made the cut for Valentine’s Day. There is a small chip in the red enamel where Rue took a dive late one night – we’re not talking – but otherwise it is in solid shape. It measures 2.5″ across, but since it is a cuff you can open or close it as you wish. It is almost 2″ high at it’s center point and weighs 1.8 ounces. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$114.14Five of Rue's Lipsticks [SOLD]
Rue had a vast pile of makeup that she collected from all the professionals taking care of her over the years. In this lot, you will get five of her used tubes of lipstick – the five shown – and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
