Featured ItemsRue's "Stallion" Sunglasses
Did Rue buy these sunglasses because of their cool, solid design? Or did she buy them because the brand name gave her a chill of delight? Hmmmmm… Anyway, Rue’s “Stallion” sunglasses come with the metal case she kept them in and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.

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’s frog earrings come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275 NOW $137.50Rue's Pine Box From 1949 Family Vacation
In 1949 Rue’s Father packed the whole family into the car and drove them from Oklahoma to New York City for a family vacation; it was the trip during which a 14-year old Rue realized she belonged in Manhattan and would some day be a star. As soon as they crossed the boarder into Arkansas and were in the foothills of the Ozarks, Rue was already shopping. They stopped at a roadside diner for lunch and she made her first purchase of the trip: this 6.5″ x 3.5″ wooden box with a bakelite vase of flowers on the front. This prized childhood souvenir comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275Rue's Little Pink Bowl
Rue’s little pink Depression Era glass bowl measures 4.75″ across and is 1.5″ high. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175Original Martha Swope 8" x 10" Stage Shot
Martha Swoop is one of the most prolific and successful dance and theatre photographers in the world. This is an original rehearsal shot that she took of Rue in her early career. If we knew who the man was, we could figure out the show. Do you know? We’re thinking this may be “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf,” but Rue looks a little too young for her turn as Martha. If you know, please email us at email@example.com. Ms. Swoop stamped this piece, so it is clearly marked as one of her photographs. Remember, because the photographer is famous, the piece is already highly collectible, but when you add in that it was OWNED by the Rue McClanahan, the provenance goes off the chart! Rue’s Martha Swoop original 8″ x 10″ comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$325 NOW $162.50Rue'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.
