Stay Tuned…New items will be regularly added to the Estate Sale. Please keep checking back for more great things from The Estate of Rue!
Featured ItemsRue's Juicer
Rue owned four juicers – the girl liked fresh juice! She was always blending up something with fresh ingredients and droplets of this or that homeopathic something or another – potions, really. However, she did NOT like the cleanup involved with the other three juicers she owned. Of all of them, this was the most user friendly. You literally snap up the little silver lip that the fresh juice pours out of and the entire thing comes apart. All the pieces are dishwasher safe, too. Rue’s SMART juicer comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.

$14.14Rue's Signed Cast Photo From "Mama's Family"
You never know what treasures can be found in the files of Rue McClanahan, and that is why EVERYTHING needs to be gone through with a fine-toothed comb. When we first started sorting though all of Rue’s file boxes and file cabinets, it looked like an endless job and it was challenging to keep going after the first thousand or so sheets of paper. However, whenever we would come across a file like this it would motivate us to keep going. Can you believe what was just sitting inside this old manila file folder?! It is an original 8″ x 10″ publicity still from “Mama’s Family” signed by the cast. Rue owned another one of these, which she kept framed and displayed in her office, but we had no idea she had a back up buried in her files! Carol Burnett’s signature is not there, but everyone else signed. Perhaps Ms. Burnett was absent the day Rue obtain all the signatures. Rue and Ms. Burnett got along beautifully, and she certainly would have signed the still for Rue, but Vicki Lawrence and Ms. Burnett, well, maybe there was a reason Ms. Burnett was avoiding the set. Anyway…Rue’s original, signed publicity shot from “Mama’s Family” comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$1,500 NOW $750Rue'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.
$275Framed Poster From One Of Rue's Early Theatrical Projects
We don’t know what year Rue was in this show. I have an idea: let’s call the theatre and see if they know; maybe they will even have some photos. Okay, I called and spoke with a nice young lady who put me in touch with the playhouse historian. I just sent her an email and we’ll see what she comes up with. In the meantime, this framed poster of Rue’s measures 27″ x 19″. It is old and there is some wrinkling and discoloration. I wonder just how old it is? We’ll see. Rue’s framed poster from “The Price” comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$250Rue's Flying Pig Bar Soap Holder
Rue loved pigs. Thus, it makes sense that she would have a flying pig as her bar soap holder. We actually don’t think this piece was made for that purpose because the base is made of a light wood and has NOT done well getting wet every single day (you can see it is kind of lumpy now). However, a soap holder is what Rue used the piece for; it sat next to her kitchen sink offering up various bars of scented soaps to those who wanted to wash their hands for many, many years. Rue’s flying pig stands 7″ tall and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
