Featured ItemsRue's Restaurant Souvenir With Polaroid
Here is one of those wonderful little souvenir cards that many restaurants used to offer, but are very rare these days. The “World Famous Turkish Kitchen” shot a Polaroid of Rue and her then sixth husband when they came in for dinner one night. Rue looks fabulous in the photo, and we think she is wearing an outfit from “The Golden Girls!” The Polaroid measures 3.5″ x 4.25″ and the whole card is 4.5″ x 6.25″. Rue’s “Turkish Kitchen” memento comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.

Rue’s little pink Depression Era glass bowl measures 4.75″ across and is 1.5″ high. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175Original, Signed "Doodle" from Rue's Manhattan Apartment [SOLD]
We probably don’t need to write much about this piece, it speaks for iteself. By now, you probably know that Rue “doodled” – as she called it – all the time. Betty White talks about how Rue used to doodle on “The Golden Girls” scripts on the video she made for Rue’s Facebook page – “The Official Rue McClanahan Memorial Facebook Page.” Rue had some of her more intricate doodles framed and kept them on the walls of her California houses and NYC apartments, and this is one of them. In addition to her elaborate drawings, this particular doodle is special because of the writing Rue did on it, and the intimate peak inside her heart the words reveal. This original work of art, signed by Rue McClanahan, comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$3,500Framed Poster From One Of Rue's Early Theatrical Projects
We don’t know what year Rue was in this show. I have an idea: let’s call the theatre and see if they know; maybe they will even have some photos. Okay, I called and spoke with a nice young lady who put me in touch with the playhouse historian. I just sent her an email and we’ll see what she comes up with. In the meantime, this framed poster of Rue’s measures 27″ x 19″. It is old and there is some wrinkling and discoloration. I wonder just how old it is? We’ll see. Rue’s framed poster from “The Price” comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$250Collection of 15 of Rue's Various Personal Photos [SOLD]
Rue maintained a vast collection of personal photographs, which she kept in cabinets in the home office of her Manhattan apartment. Here are 15 of those personal photos – with Rue appearing in each one. The snapshot from her sister’s wedding is 3.5″ x 5″, but all the rest are 4″ x 6″. She is shown having dinner with the Academy Award winning Actress Patricia Neal in one shot, and there is another famous actor whose name we can not remember now at the table with them. Oh, it’s on the tip of our tongues! Is is Robert Stack? We love Rue talking to the monkey during an Amazon Cruise, and she looks so happy in both the high school reunion shot and the one taken at Sardi’s Restaurant the night she was presented with her caricature. The collection comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$125Rue'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.
