Featured ItemsRue's Nuts and Beads Necklace [On Hold]
What a bizarre necklace, right? The bead part makes sense, but the nuts? We can just imagine Rue’s delight when she discovered the piece, too; Rue adored the unusual. This strand of 1.5mm beads and 5mm nuts is 32″ long and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225 NOW $112.50Rue's Carved Elephant Family [On Hold]
Rue grew up at a time when to be a “family” meant there was a husband, a wife, and at least one child. It took her many years and many marriages to give up on that fantasy and expand on her definition of what a family could be. Rue created a loving and supportive “chosen family” around her in the end; just like the girls did on “The Golden Girls.” Yet, she still would display the idea of the classic family she was hard-wired to believe in in various forms around her home. This little carved elephant group was one of those displays. The three pieces range in size from 2.25″ x 2.25″ inches for the “daddy” down to 1.75″ x 2″ for the “baby.” Rue’s carved wood elephant family comes with a Certificate of Authenticity form Estate of Rue.
$375Why Was This Red Plastic Bauble in Rue's Jewelry Box? [SOLD]
We have absolutely no idea how this huge red adjustable plastic ring landed in Rue’s jewelry box – alongside diamonds and emeralds – but it was there. It is almost 1.5″ across and is another 1.5″ from the bottom of the band to the surface of the “stone.” It is a mystery, but there is one thing for sure, it belonged to Rue McClanahan and thus will come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$14.14Rue's Emmy Award
Of course, Rue hung on to the dress and earrings she wore to the Primetime Emmy Awards in 1987, and she also hung on to the Emmy Award she took home that magical night for “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.” All three items are part of this package and they come with an 8 1/2” x 11” framed glossy photograph of Rue in the dress, wearing the earrings, and holding her Emmy. See clip here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1g7oY1Xw-g (Rue was miffed Howie mispronounced her name – twice!).
(You didn’t think we were seriously going to sell Rue’s Emmy, did you?)Mounted Early Interview Photo of Rue [On Hold]
Part of Rue’s job as a successful actress involved giving interviews to the press in order to promote the projects she was involved with. Rue’s name started to appear in the local newspaper when she was a girl, and she started to appear in articles that included reviews of her work by the time she was in college. However, when Rue got the role of Bea Arthur’s neighbor in “Maude” everything went to a whole new level and the national media started to pay attention to her – it was an exciting time in her life. Here is an 11″ x 14″ piece that has a mounted color photograph of Rue from an early interview. We think she looks very 1970s and chic with her cool sunglasses. This singular vintage piece from Rue’s personal professional memorabilia collection comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$325 NOW $162.50Rue's Leopard Lined Hoodie [On Hold]
