Featured ItemsFive 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.
$150Rue's Past President Chew Toys
Aren’t these a hoot? These past president chew toys made Rue roar with laughter; she especially loved the little Dan Quayle attached to President Bush! These chew toys are over 25-years old and they still are in good shape, even the squeakers in the bottoms work. Rue’s past president chew toys measures about 5.5″ high and they come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175Original Framed 8" x 10" taken at "The Golden Girls" 100th Episode Coconut Grove Bash [SOLD]
The producers of “The Golden Girls” – Danny Thomas’ son and Marlo’s brother, Tony Thomas, and the married couple Susan Harris and Paul Witt – threw a big bash for the “Girls” on the occasion of their 100th filmed episode. They gave each of them an inscribed gold Tiffany & Co. watch at the event, too. Here is a professional 8″ x 10″ photograph from the celebration that Rue kept in her home office. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225Slightly Messed Up 5" x 7" Original Signed Publicity Card [SOLD]
We see why Rue didn’t send out this original signed card from the cover shoot of her memoir; she either put something sticky on it that left a mark when she pulled it off, or she slid something across the surface. This 5″ x 7″ signed card has come scrapes or lines on the front. They are very faint, but obviously this is why Rue stuck it in a book she was reading rather than have it mailed out. Bad news that it has the mark, but good news that another card with her original signature exists – we thought they were all gone.
$175Rue's Suggestive Thumbtack Holder
First of all, only Rue McClanahan would keep her thumbtacks in such a beautiful wooden box. Second, only Rue McClanahan would own a thumbtack holder that could be called “suggestive.” Keep in mind, Rue was never overtly sexual or in any way crass or vulgar – Betty White, on the other hand… but that is another story. Anyway, Rue kept this box of thumbtacks in her office – she was always pinning something or another up on the bulletin board behind her desk – and whenever she would ask for someone to hand her a thumbtack and let them know they were in the box, as soon as they would pull the drawer open she would casually remark: “Isn’t that an interesting box? It always reminds me of something, but for the life of me I don’t know what.” It never failed to make us all roar with laughter. Yes, we all are 12-year olds at heart! Rue’s suggestive thumbtack box comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275One of Rue's Prescription Bottles
Here is another one of Rue’s prescription bottles. The bottle is empty, naturally, but it does have the printed label with Rue’s name on it. As we’ve written before, what a hoot it would be to place this in your medicine chest and then NOT tell anyone, just to see who peaks when they use your bathroom. How could they not say something if they saw this?! Rue’s prescription bottle comes with a Certificate of Authenticity form Estate of Rue.
