Featured ItemsRue'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.
$175Rue's Sexy Heart Anklet [SOLD]
Although we don’t think this is made of any “precious metal,” it is still precious because Rue owned and wore it on her tiny ankle. The chain is 9″ long and the little heart is about .25″ across. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$41.14Rue's "Prompt Script" From "Nuncrackers"
Rue loved all the nun shows she made for and with Danny Goggin. It was a combination of the writing and the team; she really had a ball whenever she went to work on a Danny Goggin project. This is Rue’s original, 8.5″ x 11″, spiral bound “Prompt Script” from the show. The piece comes with prints of the photos posted and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225Breast 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.
$114.14Rue's Etched Sterling Silver Ear Cuff (Not a Nose Ring, Right?)
This can’t be a nose ring, right? I mean, none of us ever saw Rue wear a nose ring, so it must be an ear cuff, right? Yet, it sure does LOOK like a nose ring, right? But why on Earth would Rue McClanahan own a nose ring? Unless she bought it by mistake; sometimes even world class shoppers stumble. Not that anything is WRONG with nose rings; they just aren’t Rue’s style. Anyway, this beautiful sterling silver piece is hand etched with what Rue would call a “sweet” and “precious” little floral motif. If you purchase this item be sure and send us in a photo if you happen to wear it in your nose so we can put it in Rue’s permanent archive, because this would certainly be the only nose ring she owned (but it CAN’T be a nose ring, right?). Rue’s etched, sterling silver thing comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50Citrine or Imperial Topaz? - $79 [SOLD]
As you may already know, Rue had this little faux-alligator travel case that she filled with loose gemstones – she often purchased stones and then had them made into one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces (and just for the record, how fabulous is that?). Anyway, this particular rock is either a citrine or – the rarest Imperial topaz. If it is the former, it is known as the “Lucky Merchants Stone” and is to be put in a cash register for amazing results, and is used for healing problems with digestion, diabetes, constipation and depression – none of which Rue had, so maybe it worked. If it is the later, then we are letting a stone worth a fortune go for next to nothing (which, believe it or not, Rue would love!). The boulder is over half and inch long and about 3/8″ wide. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
