Featured ItemsRue's Swinging '60s Purple Hoop Earrings [On Hold]
Aren’t these cool? The earrings dangle a full 2.25″, and the hoops themselves are 1.25″ across and .50″ thick. These are just such quintessential ’60s earrings, right? They are made of some resin and, as you can see, are translucent so the light pours through and makes them glow. Rue’s swinging ’60s dangling hoops come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225 NOW $112.50Framed Poster From One Of Rue's Early Theatrical Projects [On Hold]
We don’t know what year Rue was in this show. I have an idea: let’s call the theatre and see if they know; maybe they will even have some photos. Okay, I called and spoke with a nice young lady who put me in touch with the playhouse historian. I just sent her an email and we’ll see what she comes up with. In the meantime, this framed poster of Rue’s measures 27″ x 19″. It is old and there is some wrinkling and discoloration. I wonder just how old it is? We’ll see. Rue’s framed poster from “The Price” comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$250The Last of Rue's "Eye" Pieces [SOLD]
Rue purchased four amazing pieces from a California ceramicist back in the ’80s; she loved these items and moved them from one house to the next until all four ended up in her Manhattan apartment. Although none of the pieces are signed with a name, they all have the “Eye Motif.” Rue’s son is keeping the huge naked woman platter, the cow bowl went to a fan in Chicago, we are delivering the enormous nymph bowl to a woman from Pennsylvania this weekend, and that leaves only one piece – the “Bone Plate.” This ceramic platter measures 17″ long by a foot wide; it is BIG. The piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. This is your last chance to own one of the pieces from Rue’s collection of this fun artist’s work. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$475Rue's Depression Era Glass Golden Square Plate [On Hold]
Rue used this plate for this and that, here and there in her Manhattan apartment. The beautifully etched (or is that a molded design?) Depression Era glass piece measures 6″ square and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175Original 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.
$650 NOW $325LAST COPY - 2013 "The Men of Blanche's Boudoir" Collection of Photos Calendar [SOLD]
In Season 2, Episode 11 of “The Golden Girls” – “T’was the Nightmare Before Christmas” – Blanche gave the girls a special calendar. You can watch the iconic scene by pasteing this link in your search box: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FHFAdFPERY. Although Rue owned one of the three originals – and no one knows if the other two even exist anymore – and we’ve listed the original on this site for sale, fans have repeated requested a more affordable version. So, we’ve come up with a special 2013 calender that has a copy of the original cover on the front and a miniature of it on each month’s display page. In an outtake version of the scene, you can see the surprise when the actresses found pictures of the crew in various… um… compromising positions inside the mock-up (This calendar IS NOT FOR CHILDREN; although there is no nudity, there are some very… um… “adult-themed” photos inside). We include copies of those original crew photos from each month’s page and then added a childhood picture of Rue and an adult picture of her. We’re calling this version the “Collection of Photos” version. This is the perfect gift for “The Golden Girls” fan in your life, even if that person is you!
