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 Director Chair [SOLD]
We aren’t quite sure which project Rue used this chair on, but we know she had it for years in the yard of her Manhattan apartment. The canvas has a little discoloration along the edge, and the stain is worn off the arms in some spots from frequent use, but it is still solid and there are no rips. The back is embroidered with Rue’s name. Comes with the frame and panels shown, and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$325Rue'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.
$41.14Old 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.
$214.14Original Photograph With Significant Hollywood Connection [On Hold]
Rue was made the Honorary Mayor of Hollywood in the ’90s. Don’t you just love the enthusiasm and joy of the women near her? Anyway, the photographer who took the photo was George Hurrell’s last assistant, the photographer Richard Settle. Hurrell was the biggest Hollywood glamour photographer in history, and his long term assistant is an amazing photographer in his own right. We know for a fact that this photograph is “important” because it is an original print of Rue McClanahan that was personally owned by her, but we suspect it is “IMPORTANT” on a completely different level due to the historical significance of the man who shot the photo. Only time will tell…. Rue’s original photograph from the day she became Honorary Mayor comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$575Rue'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.
$275Rue's Amazing Bronze And Pink Quartz Creation [On Hold]
Now this is what jewelry is meant to be! Just look at this vintage, one-of-a-kind piece of Rue’s; isn’t it amazing? We’re calling those links that make up the chain “bones” and each one is about 2″ long, so the whole piece is 24″. The huge center medallion creation is 4″ x 2″ and a full inch thick. We think that is a big polished chunk of pink quartz in the center. Rue’s substantial, unique necklace comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
