Featured ItemsRue's Large Painted Canvas Pillow
This is another fabulous piece that came from the renovation of Rue’s Encino, California home – when she was spending money like a Rockefeller! Do you know she actually spent over $1,000,000 on her yard alone! And this was almost 30-years ago (Oh, Rue!). Anyway, she did pick up some really amazing possessions during those crazy years, and this 19″, hand-painted canvas pillow is one of them. The piece comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275Rue'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 Foldable Sun Hat
Isn’t this fun? What a great design. This full sized sun hat of Rue’s folds down to this flat little contraption that you can stick into a bag or your pocket, or you can use the chin strap to carry it around your wrist. Rue’s collapsible sun hat comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50Rue's Restaurant Souvenir With Polaroid
Here is one of those wonderful little souvenir cards that many restaurants used to offer, but are very rare these days. The “World Famous Turkish Kitchen” shot a Polaroid of Rue and her then sixth husband when they came in for dinner one night. Rue looks fabulous in the photo, and we think she is wearing an outfit from “The Golden Girls!” The Polaroid measures 3.5″ x 4.25″ and the whole card is 4.5″ x 6.25″. Rue’s “Turkish Kitchen” memento comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$99 NOW $49.50Six of Rue's Lipsticks [SOLD]
Rue has lots and lots of makeup. Although she preferred to have a professional do hers for her – as long as they were quick about it – she wasn’t afraid to do it herself. One of her classic Rue McClanahan signatures involved applying a fresh coat of whatever tube of lipstick was handy – and she had lipsticks all over the house – and then kissing whatever she was signing. In fact, since she’d suffered a stroke and her right arm was weak, she signed the separation agreement from her final husband with lipstick and her lips. We’ll include a copy of one of her lipstick signatures with these six tubes of her lipstick and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$125Signed Publicity Still From 1970 Movie
Do you remember Eli Wallach? He made a zillion movies and worked right up until the end of his long life. He was married to the beautiful and equally talented Anne Jackson for something like 60 years. Mr. Wallach was a real winner in the game of life. Rue was friends with the couple for many decades. She and Mr. Wallach worked together for the first time in 1970 when they made the movie “The People Next Door.” Rue wrote about the movie, and one of her hilarious lines from the script, in her memoir – “My First Five Husband…And The Ones Who Got Away” – and this original 8″ x 10″ signed publicity shot was reprinted in the book. In fact, the publishers sticker is still on the back of this picture. Rue’s signed publicity still – signed by both Rue and Eli Wallach – comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
