Featured ItemsRue's Red Velvet Lounging Pajamas
These red velvet lounging pajamas are over-the-top! How glamorous can anyone be? It is almost required that one walks around carrying a martini in an up glass when you wear something like this! We suspect Rue wore these in a theatrical production because the draw string was pulled out and an elastic waistband sewn in, which is usually what a costumer will do to facilitate the quick changes needed on the stage. The two-piece outfit was made by “The Pajamagram Company” and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275 NOW $137.50Engraved Framed Photo from "The Women" - 2001 [DONATED]
Rue loved her role as Countess De Lage in the Broadway hit “The Women.” This original 5″ X 7″ black and white photo was shot on opening night. It was gifted to Rue by the show’s producers in an engraved silver metal 7.25″ x 9.25″ frame. Although it is a little scratched up from years of being handled in Rue’s apartment by just about everyone who walked through the door, the engraving is clear; it reads: “The Women November 8, 2001, Roundabout Theatre Company.” In the photo, in addition to other co-stars, you can see the two Jennifers behind Rue – Tilly and Coolidge. This is a piece of Broadway history here. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$250Rue Made Christmas Ornament with Mini-Pictures from Her Life [SOLD]
You know Rue was a big crafter, right? If she wasn’t in front of a camera, she was working on some interesting little project or another. Here is a personalized Christmas ornament she made. Fist, she took a card she’d received and made copies and glued them onto construction paper. Then, she scanned and miniaturized pictures of herself over the decades, cut them out, and glued them on like they were ornaments on a mini-tree. The result is “The Rue McClanahan Ornament,” and you won’t find this in the stores. She made a few of them, but each is different. This one has copied pictures that she’d already glued on, plus some images unique to this particular ornament. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.Rue's Silly Frog Umbrella
We’ve written before and we probably will again – Rue McClanahan had a thing for frogs. Isn’t this umbrella a hoot? It was probably made for a child, but Rue McClanahan carried it high and proud. She could be silly with a completely straight face, too, which made it all the funnier. Rue’s frog umbrella comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225 NOW $112.50Rue's Golden Depression Era Candlestick (FIRST FROM TEXAS HOUSE!)
We’re listing this under “Manhattan Apartment” because that is the only house category we have here on estateofrue.com – and we have no idea how one goes about adding another category to the page – but this piece actually came from Rue’s California house via her Texas house. This is the first item we are posting from Rue’s Texas house, too! After six years we are FINALLY ready to start digging into that mountain of stuff. What happened is when Rue sold her California house, she shipped the contents down to her Texas house in an 18-wheeler truck; and to this day much of it is still in the boxes she and a friend packed almost 20-years ago! Get ready for a whole new supply of Rue McClanahan treasures. First up is this golden Depression Glass candlestick. It is 2.25″ tall and has a 3.5″ base. Rue’s candlestick comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175Breast Cancer Awareness Pearl Bracelet [SOLD]
As a breast cancer survivor, Rue did a lot to help raise money for breast cancer research and treatment for the victims of this horrific disease. This freshwater pearl bracelet has a little sterling silver heart and a heart clasp. The pearls are over .5 cm wide and the bracelet is 7″ long. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
