Featured ItemsSigned Publicity Still From 1970 Movie
Do you remember Eli Wallach? He made a zillion movies and worked right up until the end of his long life. He was married to the beautiful and equally talented Anne Jackson for something like 60 years. Mr. Wallach was a real winner in the game of life. Rue was friends with the couple for many decades. She and Mr. Wallach worked together for the first time in 1970 when they made the movie “The People Next Door.” Rue wrote about the movie, and one of her hilarious lines from the script, in her memoir – “My First Five Husband…And The Ones Who Got Away” – and this original 8″ x 10″ signed publicity shot was reprinted in the book. In fact, the publishers sticker is still on the back of this picture. Rue’s signed publicity still – signed by both Rue and Eli Wallach – comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$375 NOW $187.50Rue's Director Chair [SOLD]
We aren’t quite sure which project Rue used this chair on, but we know she had it for years in the yard of her Manhattan apartment. The canvas has a little discoloration along the edge, and the stain is worn off the arms in some spots from frequent use, but it is still solid and there are no rips. The back is embroidered with Rue’s name. Comes with the frame and panels shown, and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$325Red Hard Stone Clip On Earrings [SOLD]
The perfect color for Valentine’s Day. Rue’s red stone earrings measure 1″ long by about 7/8″ wide. They weigh .7 ounces and come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$99 NOW $49.50Window Valance and/or Scarf [SOLD]
Rue wore this as a scarf and kept it in the closet with her scarves, and yet when we were measuring it (2′ x a rather lengthy 10′) we couldn’t help but wonder if it was a swag window valance that she had yanked down and wore, just like Scarlet O’Hare in that one movie. So, we’re offering it as a combo Window Valance/Scarf and we’ll send it along with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$99 NOW $49.50Rue'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's Williams-Sonoma Heavy Porcelain Platter
This heavy porcelain platter of Rue’s is bigger than you might expect from the photos – it is 17″ long, 6.5″ wide, and it has a 1.5″ high rim around it. There seems to be some discoloration from a long ago buffet spread at one of Rue’s parties – it looks like tomato stains – but it might come out, we didn’t try. The piece was made by Williams-Sonoma and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
