Featured ItemsFormal Portrait of Rue, Her Little Sister, and Mother [On Hold]
This formal portrait was taken of Rue, her little sister Melinda, and her mother back in 1944. Rue told me that her grandmother made their matching dresses; obviously that is where both Rue and her sister got their sewing talent, because those dresses are beautiful. Although people are always raving about digital photography, we think these old black and whites from film are crisper than anything around today. Rue’s original 8.75″ x 6.5″ portrait from 1944 comes with a certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$375 NOW $187.50Rue'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.
$350"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.
$79.00Rue's Amethyst and Crystal Necklace [On Hold]
Rue’s amethyst and bead necklace has a very substantial, expensive feeling to it. Although it is not marked, we suspect it was made by that jewelry designer Rue adored, the one whose name we do not know, but we find her initials – “A.R.” – all over pieces in Rue’s jewelry collection. This necklace has 16 diamond faceted rocks of amethyst that measure almost a half an inch across each, and the 32 smaller diamond shaped stones that bookend the larger ones may be amethyst too! The whole necklace is 32-inches long and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$375 NOW $187.50Rue's Juicer [On Hold]
Rue owned four juicers – the girl liked fresh juice! She was always blending up something with fresh ingredients and droplets of this or that homeopathic something or another – potions, really. However, she did NOT like the cleanup involved with the other three juicers she owned. Of all of them, this was the most user friendly. You literally snap up the little silver lip that the fresh juice pours out of and the entire thing comes apart. All the pieces are dishwasher safe, too. Rue’s SMART juicer comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50Original Photographs Given To Rue By Brad Davis From "Midnight Express" [On Hold]
Rue adored the late actor Brad Davis, and from all accounts the feeling was mutual. Rue and Mr. Davis did theatre together in New York City in the ’70s, and then Mr. Davis lived at Rue’s home when he first moved out to California. Not only did Rue love him personally, but she considered him one of the finest young actors of his generation. Brad Davis starred in the powerful movie “Midnight Express” – if you haven’t seen it, we highly recommend you stop reading this and add it to your Netflix queue immediately! – and he gifted Rue these original stills from the production. The photographs measure 10″ x 6-6.75″. We are including an original 4.5″ x 3.5″ snapshot from Rue’s personal photo collection of the two of them and others at the Cannes Film Festival in 1978. We’ll also include prints of the two photos of Rue and Brad showing them on stage together in New York City and in Rue’s garden in California. This mini photo collection will appear on one Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
