Featured Items"The Golden Girls" Cast & Crew Gift for 1987 [SOLD]
This cast & crew gift from “The Girls” to all those that helped them make the show happen is over 25-years old. Items like this cause us such difficulty with pricing. On the one hand, it is Rue McClanahan’s ONLY saved cast & crew gift from the 1987 Season of “The Golden Girls,” and how do you put a price on that? There is only one of these in the world – that belonged to Rue – and once it is gone, it is gone forever. On the other hand, it is just an old brass key chain and those are a dime-a-dozen. So, we spin the wheel in our heads and pick a number. We are either deluded in thinking this thing is worth this much money, or we are the biggest fools on Earth since it will sell for a zillion dollars someday at some big auction house. Please help and guide us Rue! This item measures 3.75″ long by 1.5″ wide – it is big! Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$800Heart Locket on Sterling Chain [SOLD]
Although there are no pictures inside this 3/4″ heart-shaped locket, we think it may be the one Rue wore in the movie “Rusty: The Great Rescue,” a film she made back in 1997 with Hal Holbrook. The chain is sterling silver and 18″ long and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$114.14Rue's "Arsenio Hall Show" Gift
Rue appeared on “The Arsenio Hall Show” a couple of times while she was on “The Golden Girls.” Rue adored Arsenio. Like most talk shows, the show had certain gift items identified with the production that they would give to guests. During his first talk show stint, Arsenio Hall had a stuffed bear wearing a monogrammed satin disco jacket that he presented to his guests. The bear measures about a foot tall and is eight inches wide at its widest point. Rue kept the bear Arsenio gave her for over 20-years! You can see Rue’s bear in the center of a bed in her California house in the picture posted. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275Gold Cowboy Hat [SOLD]
Rue wore this shiny golden cowboy hat in a movie she made in 1998 with Hal Holbrook entitled “Rusty – The Great Rescue.” Whatever fiber the hat is made of, they coated it with something to make it solid. It is lightweight and the wardrobe person sewed in a 1.5″ thick soft band so it is comfortable to wear. It measures 14.5″ in length with the opening being 7.75″. It is 12.75″ wide and stands 5.25″ high. This hat comes with a print of the picture of Rue and Hal from the film and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175Rue's Fabric Covered Hoops
These 2.5″ across fabric covered hoop earrings of Rue’s look to be custom made, and that leads us to believe they are from a production that we have yet to identify. The sequins and beads sewn on top have a definite handmade look to them. These are unique earrings. Rue’s fabric covered hoops come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275 NOW $137.50Rue Made Dangling Frog Earrings
Rue made this pair of dangling frog earrings way back in the 1990s. The frogs are a half inch across and the whole earring dangles down 2.5″. Rue really did have a thing for frogs, they were all over her house in one form or another, as you can see from the photo posted which shows some of her other frogs. Rue’s frog earrings come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
