Featured ItemsRue's Amazing Work-Of-Art Necklace
This necklace is nothing short of a work-of-art! The piece was custom made for Rue by a Florida designer who made Rue’s jewelry for the series “Safe Harbor.” The necklace has many different beads, balls, crystals, turquoise pieces, and metal thingamabobs. Rue’s work-of-art necklace measures 26″ long and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$375 NOW $187.50Old Locket with Something Special Inside [SOLD]
This vintage metal locket hangs on an interesting-type link 18″ chain. The locket itself is etched metal, measures about .5″ x .75″, and is obviously quite old. But what makes this piece particularly special is because of what is inside – there are two little pictures, one of Bea Arthur and one of Rue McClanahan, and they are from the night Rue won her Emmy Award – isn’t that sweet! Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$214.14Black and White Original Cardboard Mounted Rue Portrait From 1967
Rue owned two of these blow ups from a 1967 portrait shot by Jacques Cartier; he was the founder of The Hartford Stage Company where she performed for a season. We already posted the framed one that hung in Rue’s home office – you can see that one in the photos posted – but this is probably the one you can see without a frame in the photo taken in Rue’s Cloisters of Fort Lee home in 1972. This is a large piece – it measures 13.75″ high and 10.5″ wide, and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$375 NOW $187.50Rue's Signed and Framed Marquee Poster From "Picnic"
Rue and Gregory Harrison did it all together; meaning they did television, film and the stage. As for anything else….who’s to say except Mr. Harrison? Although have a look at his note to Rue…hmmmm…. No doubt about it, Gregory Harrison was and is S-E-X-Y! Anyway, they did a stage production and movie version of the show “Picnic” back in the ’80s, and this is a signed marquee poster from the production that was presented to Rue by the cast. The female lead of this production was none other than Jennifer Jason Leigh; she’s having a career resurgence right now, right? This 22″ x 14″ poster has been matted and set in a 25.25″ x 17.25″ frame. There appears to be some water damage to the top of the gold mat, but otherwise it seems to be in good condition. Rue’s signed and framed poster from “Picnic” comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$375 NOW $187.50Rue's Framed American Indian Piece From ENRON Collection (Oh, dear!) (*UPDATE)
Rue felt a deep spiritual connection to the Native American People. She carried some Indian blood in her own heart, and she was proud of that fact, but it was more than that for her. The struggles they endured, their connection to Mother Earth and all of its inhabitants, and their creativity and craftsmanship all connected with her old soul. Rue loved this framed piece – a print of a drawing done in 1833 by an artist accompanying a prince on an expedition. Rue loved it because it was actually drawn in the moment, she loved the authenticity of the piece. This piece first hung in her California home and then later in her Manhattan apartment. The framed print measures 18.25″ x 24″ and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
*UPDATE – We came across a photograph of Rue wearing one of her Native American treasures with this picture on the wall in the background. We posted it at the end and will include a print with this item.
$475 NOW $237.50Why Was This Red Plastic Bauble in Rue's Jewelry Box? [SOLD]
We have absolutely no idea how this huge red adjustable plastic ring landed in Rue’s jewelry box – alongside diamonds and emeralds – but it was there. It is almost 1.5″ across and is another 1.5″ from the bottom of the band to the surface of the “stone.” It is a mystery, but there is one thing for sure, it belonged to Rue McClanahan and thus will come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
