Featured Items"Miss Craig's Face-Saving Exercises" and 13 Other Books from Rue's Library
Rue loved to read and she owned a room full of books. Each of the books in this collection of 14 titles will have a printed bookplate on the inside indicating the following: “From the Private Library of Rue McClanahan.” Although “Miss Craig’s Face-Saving Exercises” from 1970 is almost too good to let go – someone really ought to frame the inside cover – we have decided that it is time to clear out Rue’s books. This stack consists of six hardcover and eight softcover titles, and it includes a wonderful coffee table book about theatre. Comes with one Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
(We’ll pay shipping for US residents because we can use Media Mail, but out of Country must pay shipping – books are HEAVY! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll create a shipping button for you if you reside outside the United States.)
$275Rue'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.
$41.14Original 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.
$225A Strand of Rue's Butterflies
Rue owned several of these 6-foot long strands of butterflies. She had them in three different sizes, too, and this one is the smallest, with each of the 12 butterflies measuring approximately 4″ across. We don’t know exactly what these little wonders are made out of, but the wings have the same feel and look as if they were from real butterflies. Rue used to hang these in her houseplants, and you can see a strand or two in the tall plant next to her in the photo posted. Rue’s strand of butterflies come with a print of the photo shown and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225Rue's Golden Cup and Saucer
Rue could be a glamour girl when she wanted to be, and when she wanted to be a glamour girl she would drink her tea or coffee out of this golden cup and saucer. Do you have certain pieces you use depending upon your mood? Well, Rue did. This piece measures 4.75″ across from the edge of handle to the opposite side cup lip, and 2.25″ high. The matching saucer is 5.75″ across. Rue’s golden cup and saucer comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275Elaine Stritch Signed Playbill To Rue
Elaine Stritch was a big Broadway star with a STRONG personality. Rue had the utmost respect for her talent and was a big fan of Ms. Stritch’s one-woman show – “Elaine Stritch At Liberty.” This is Rue’s Playbill from the show that Elaine Stritch signed to her. It reads: “To Rue love & peace Elaine Stritch.” The piece will come with prints of the photos showing Rue and Elaine together and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
