Featured ItemsMore Christmas Ornaments [SOLD]
Three more of Rue’s Christmas ornaments. The silver pine cone is glass and measures 7.5″ long and about 2.5″ at its widest. The apple is made of what feels like cardboard or thick treated paper with some sort of varnish on it. It measures 1.75″ across and has a slight crack on the side. The dog is 4″ high and about 3.5″ long. It is signed: “Love Eadie + Chris Xmas 1986″ and we believe it was from a couple of Rue’s employees (and friends) at the time. You can see the ornaments with Rue in the picture taken while she was decorating the tree. The other photo is Rue and her second husband taken in front of the completed tree. We’ll include copies of both pictures and a Certificate of Authenticity.
$125 NOW $62.50Rue's Large Fresh Water Pearls [SOLD]
Rue’s large fresh water pearl necklace measures 22″ long, with the knotted pendant hanging down 6″. It is a triple strand that weighs 4.9 ounces. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$350Rue's Signed Cast Photo From "Mama's Family"
You never know what treasures can be found in the files of Rue McClanahan, and that is why EVERYTHING needs to be gone through with a fine-toothed comb. When we first started sorting though all of Rue’s file boxes and file cabinets, it looked like an endless job and it was challenging to keep going after the first thousand or so sheets of paper. However, whenever we would come across a file like this it would motivate us to keep going. Can you believe what was just sitting inside this old manila file folder?! It is an original 8″ x 10″ publicity still from “Mama’s Family” signed by the cast. Rue owned another one of these, which she kept framed and displayed in her office, but we had no idea she had a back up buried in her files! Carol Burnett’s signature is not there, but everyone else signed. Perhaps Ms. Burnett was absent the day Rue obtain all the signatures. Rue and Ms. Burnett got along beautifully, and she certainly would have signed the still for Rue, but Vicki Lawrence and Ms. Burnett, well, maybe there was a reason Ms. Burnett was avoiding the set. Anyway…Rue’s original, signed publicity shot from “Mama’s Family” comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$1,500 NOW $750Delicate Beaded Necklace [SOLD]
We believe this beaded necklace is made by the woman who Rue bought most of her beaded jewelry from, and we think that might be her with Rue in the picture. What her name is, we haven’t a clue. Anyway, this 23.5″ beaded necklace is relatively simple and delicate. It has pink and green glass beads, and then what appear to be tiny freshwater pearls or pearl-type beads and then some little gold colored balls. Rue had commented in the past that all this woman’s jewelry was quite expensive – partially because each piece was a one-of-a-kind, but also because of the fine materials she used – so we might be giving treasures away again, but we believe once in awhile a gamble with pricing is in order because the worst case scenario is: one of Rue’s fans gets a great deal on a treasure – and that isn’t a bad thing. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$49.50Rue'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 $87.50Barrettes with Red Stones [SOLD]
These pretty filigreed silver colored barrettes have red stones around a single rhinestone on each one. They come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue. Happy Valentine’s Day!
