Featured ItemsRue'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 Made Dangling Frog Earrings
Rue made this pair of dangling frog earrings way back in the 1990s. The frogs are a half inch across and the whole earring dangles down 2.5″. Rue really did have a thing for frogs, they were all over her house in one form or another, as you can see from the photo posted which shows some of her other frogs. Rue’s frog earrings come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275 NOW $137.50Original Signed 8" x 10" Head Shot [SOLD]
When Rue signed head shots, if she didn’t like the way her signature turned out, she’d shove it in a drawer, or a book, a magazine, a script, under a couch cushion, etc… We thought we had found the last of them, but we recently came across a couple more in a box of office supplies. Here is one of them. We think the signature looks great, but perhaps she didn’t like all the squiggles she put around her name. Anyway, here it is, one of the last 8″ x 10″ original signed head shots we have. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
$275Rue'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 $225Large Natural Brazilian Garnet [SOLD]
This rather substantial stone would make an excellent cocktail ring, solitaire necklace, pin, or single earring for those who wear them. Rue picked the gem up during a cruise along the Amazon river. It measures 3/8″ long and just short of that wide, and is about 1/4″ thick. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$150An Early "Doodle" From Rue's Collection
This is a very early “doodle” from Rue’s collection. You can see many of the design features and shapes that she would use over and over throughout the years in this early piece, and there is a definite joy to the drawing that remained constant all the way through her “doodling” career. This original drawing is 9″ x 12″ and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
