$275Rue's African Beaded Purse [On Hold]
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.
$375"Wicked" Signed Cookbook and Signed Playbill with Publicity Card - $79 [SOLD]
While Rue was playing Madame Morrible in the hit Broadway Musical “Wicked,” the cast and crew released a second edition of their charitable cookbook. Rue included a questionable recipe from her Aunt Wenonah that actually involves pouring a can of 7-Up into a baking dish with dough! We made it, and guess what? It is delicious! Anyway, the cookbook is signed by Rue and we’ll include an original signed playbill and publicity card, too. It measures 5.75″ x 8.5″, is 131 pages long, and contains over 65 recipes. Comes with a 4″ x 6″ print of Rue on stage with Ben Vereen as The Wizard – just because we love that picture – and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$79.00Six 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.
$125Original Photograph With Significant Hollywood Connection [On Hold]
Rue was made the Honorary Mayor of Hollywood in the ’90s. Don’t you just love the enthusiasm and joy of the women near her? Anyway, the photographer who took the photo was George Hurrell’s last assistant, the photographer Richard Settle. Hurrell was the biggest Hollywood glamour photographer in history, and his long term assistant is an amazing photographer in his own right. We know for a fact that this photograph is “important” because it is an original print of Rue McClanahan that was personally owned by her, but we suspect it is “IMPORTANT” on a completely different level due to the historical significance of the man who shot the photo. Only time will tell…. Rue’s original photograph from the day she became Honorary Mayor comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$575Rue's Amazing Bronze And Pink Quartz Creation [On Hold]
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.
