Featured ItemsThe Love Birds
Don’t you just love love? Rue simply adored love, and she particularly enjoyed falling in love and those early giddy stages where it was all you could think about. It is during that time when everything you see – even two little carved seagulls – reminds you of your love. Rue bought these carved wooden gulls during a trip to the ocean with her new love back in the late ’90s and then wrote their names on the bottoms of the pieces. This pair of love birds are between 7 and eight inches tall, over 5 inches wide, and just over 4 inches deep. The pair come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$375Two of Rue's Red Antique Hat Pins [SOLD]
Rue had a collection of antique hat pins and we want to offer two of them instead of just one so you can start to build your own collection. The hat pins are about 5″ long and they come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$99 NOW $49.50Rue's Unique Twisty Metal Necklace/Sculpture
This is an amazing piece! Is it a necklace? Is it a piece of sculpture? Rue wore it as a piece of jewelry, but it really could sit on one’s desk or a shelf in any shape you wanted. Through ingenious design, the piece has this ability to hold any shape you put it into. Rue’s metal necklace/sculpture measures 36″ long and it is a tad over .25″ thick. The piece will come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$375 NOW $187.50Rue's Origami Dollar Bill Ring
Rue didn’t need diamonds to make her happy. When a gentleman folded her this origami dollar bill ring she was thrilled. It remained in her jewelry box – among the diamonds, emeralds, rubies and other “fine jewelry” – for the rest of her life. Rue’s origami dollar bill ring is a size 7.5 and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50Rue's Flying Pig Bar Soap Holder
Rue loved pigs. Thus, it makes sense that she would have a flying pig as her bar soap holder. We actually don’t think this piece was made for that purpose because the base is made of a light wood and has NOT done well getting wet every single day (you can see it is kind of lumpy now). However, a soap holder is what Rue used the piece for; it sat next to her kitchen sink offering up various bars of scented soaps to those who wanted to wash their hands for many, many years. Rue’s flying pig stands 7″ tall and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275Original Photograph From Charity Campaign Rue Did With A Dear Friend
Can you believe that “dear friend” that Rue did this charity campaign with is Estelle Getty?! It doesn’t even look like her, does it? The hair and makeup team on “The Golden Girls” really did a great job making Estelle Getty look older than she really was. There is a rumor that has been circulating for decades that Estelle was the YOUNGEST one of “The Golden Girls,” but that is not true. In fact, Rue was the youngest of all the women, but 12 years, but Estelle WAS two months younger than Bea Arthur, who played her daughter “Dorothy,” so Rue always suspected that was how the rumor started. Trust me though, Rue was ALWAYS quick to correct people on that one! Anyway, here is an original 5″ x 7″ photograph that Rue owned from a charitable photo campaign she and Estelle did together. Those two really adored each other – all the girls loved Estelle – and you can see it in this photo, and you can see it in the final photo taken of the two of them together right before Estelle passed away; their’s was a friendship that lasted until the end. There were a few portraits with wardrobe and animal changes from this shoot, but this was the one used in the campaign. Rue’s original photograph with Estelle Getty comes with prints of the other photos posted a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
