Featured ItemsRue's Glass Clock
This glass clock was made by the “Nautica” company and so we think it is supposed to resemble a sail, and it does. Rue’s glass clock needs a new battery. It measures 5.75″ high, 3.75″ wide, and 1.75″ deep. Rue’s glass clock comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175Rue's African Beaded Purse
Isn’t this a wonderful piece of art? Rue found this handmade beaded purse during a trip to Tangiers and she had to have it. It is very thin and holds practically nothing, so it is more a piece for displaying rather than a purse to actually carry; and besides, the 40″ beaded strap blew some beads – Rue taped it with some painters tape that was handy – so it really is being sold as a work or art and not a functional purse. The piece measures 13.5″ x 9.5″ and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$375Rue's Amazing Bronze And Pink Quartz Creation
Now this is what jewelry is meant to be! Just look at this vintage, one-of-a-kind piece of Rue’s; isn’t it amazing? We’re calling those links that make up the chain “bones” and each one is about 2″ long, so the whole piece is 24″. The huge center medallion creation is 4″ x 2″ and a full inch thick. We think that is a big polished chunk of pink quartz in the center. Rue’s substantial, unique necklace comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$750 NOW $375Rue's Certificate of Appreciation From The Police
Rue McClanahan LOVED police officers in uniform (and out of uniform!), and the feeling was mutual. The Police Benevolent Association presented Rue with this framed Certificate of Appreciation back in 1997 when she first moved back to New York. The piece measures 14.25″ x 11.75″. Rue’s framed Certificate of Appreciation comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$375Gift from Bea Arthur [SOLD]
This is a very difficult piece to let go of because it was one of Rue’s prized possessions, but Rue’s son intends to follow his Mother’s final wishes and make ALL of her personal property available to her fans – except family items of sentimental value that he selected. Bea Arthur had this sterling silver and 14kt gold pin custom made for her friend Rue McClanahan way back during the “Maude” years. Both their friendship and their working relationship continued for many more years – the friendship until Bea died, in fact – and there were many more gifts exchanged during that time, but Rue said this was the one she cherished most. There was something about a talented, professional like Bea recognizing and setting down in silver and gold that she thought Rue was a star that really touched Rue’s heart. The pin measures 1″ x 1.5″. We’ll include prints of some of Rue’s personal photos showing the two ladies together and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$2,000Gold Cowboy Hat [SOLD]
Rue wore this shiny golden cowboy hat in a movie she made in 1998 with Hal Holbrook entitled “Rusty – The Great Rescue.” Whatever fiber the hat is made of, they coated it with something to make it solid. It is lightweight and the wardrobe person sewed in a 1.5″ thick soft band so it is comfortable to wear. It measures 14.5″ in length with the opening being 7.75″. It is 12.75″ wide and stands 5.25″ high. This hat comes with a print of the picture of Rue and Hal from the film and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
