$99 NOW $49.50Original Framed 8" x 10" taken at "The Golden Girls" 100th Episode Coconut Grove Bash [SOLD]
The producers of “The Golden Girls” – Danny Thomas’ son and Marlo’s brother, Tony Thomas, and the married couple Susan Harris and Paul Witt – threw a big bash for the “Girls” on the occasion of their 100th filmed episode. They gave each of them an inscribed gold Tiffany & Co. watch at the event, too. Here is a professional 8″ x 10″ photograph from the celebration that Rue kept in her home office. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225NOW $80! Rue's Dramatic Black Hat with Hat Box [SOLD]
One glance will tell you that this hat of Rue’s was definitely for some role she played – it is just too dramatic! Even if the tulle netting, ostrich feather, and sequins didn’t convince you, then certainly the double-stick tape and foam insert put in there so the hat would stay firmly on her head would do the trick – this hat is from a project, we just don’t know which one. Therefore, this “Sonni of San Fransisco” number is being listed as one of Rue’s personal hats from her closet. The entire piece is about 10″ across and about 8″ high, but it is malleable and so those measurements can change. The firm woven part is about 7″ x 6″ and it has a double row of sequins inside the brim. Because of the big feather, Rue kept the hat in a solid hat box – 12″ x 4.5″ – and we’ll include the box with the hat. Also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
$275 NOW $80!Rue'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 $137.50Five Original Polaroids from Publicity Shoot [SOLD]
Before the days of digital photography and access to an instant image on a camera’s display screen, professional photographers couldn’t see what they shot until the film was developed. God forbid if the film came back and nothing was usable and the whole thing had to be re-shot! So, pros would shoot set-up images using a Polaroid Camera. Everyone would gather around the Polaroids, pass them around, and blah, blah, blah about styling, lighting, hair, makeup, etc… “Shoot some Polaroids” was a phrase heard on every professional set in the world, although I don’t think it happens so much anymore, and less and less with each passing day. Sadly, the vast majority of those one-of-a-kind Polaroid images from countless photo shoots over the decades hit the trashcan – people usually didn’t think of them as anything important or savable at the time. However, our girl Rue ALWAYS tried to snag the Polaroids from her photo shoots. Here is a wonderful set of five from some big budget shoot in the late ’80s or early ’90s. These 25-year old pictures are still in excellent shape and would be perfect for framing. Each one measures 3.25″ x 4.25″, and all five will appear on one Certificate of Authenticity.
$425Rue's Big Brass Heart Cuff [SOLD]
This brass and enamel cuff has hearts painted on it and so it made the cut for Valentine’s Day. There is a small chip in the red enamel where Rue took a dive late one night – we’re not talking – but otherwise it is in solid shape. It measures 2.5″ across, but since it is a cuff you can open or close it as you wish. It is almost 2″ high at it’s center point and weighs 1.8 ounces. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
