Featured ItemsWhy 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.
$14.14Pink Beaded Bracelet with a Heart-Shaped Clasp [SOLD]
Doesn’t Rue look great in this ad? We can’t tell for sure it this is one of the pink beaded bracelets Rue is wearing in this ad, we thought it might be the top one, but no matter, it was definitely one in her collection and we liked the picture so much we wanted to post it. The bracelet weighs .5 ounces and measures 7.5″ long. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$114.14Rue's "Magnolia" Tunic
Here is another piece Rue owned that was made by her dear friend Grace Martin. Rue had to alter the piece slightly by sewing the center, cleavage-closing fabric into the bodice after a wardrobe malfunction left her…ahem….exposed. The silk is gorgeous. The piece is kind of a one-size-fits-all tunic and there is a label sewn in that reads: “It’s A Magnolia by Grace Martin.” Rue’s print silk tunic comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50Rue's Girl on a Bench T-Shirt
This casual 3/4-sleeve T-shirt of Rue’s was probably from some professional gig because the tag was cut out and there were half a dozen sequins hand sewn on the front. Usually Rue or a costumer on set would do something like that to make sure the tag didn’t stick out after a quick change, and to catch the lights and make something have a little extra pop. However, since we can’t find any photos of Rue wearing the piece in a production, and we have no idea what it was used in, we’re listing this shirt here in her closet. Rue’s girl-on-a-bench tee comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50Fabulous Framed Original Publicity Still from "The Rotten Apple" [SOLD]
This might just be the only one of these particular publicity stills remaining in the world! It is from one of the first movies Rue ever made. She ended up in a long love affair with the director – natch! Rue hung onto this amazing shot for almost 50 years, and she loved the look of it until the end of her life. It is framed in an vintage tin or some other light metal frame, and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$150Rue's Depression Era Footed Mini Pedestal
Rue owned a few mini-display platters, and there was no better feeling than walking into her Manhattan apartment and seeing one of them out on the sideboard or on the kitchen counter with a little treat waiting for you. Rue loved to bake and I can’t tell you the number of cupcakes that waited for me on this little platter over the years. This small piece is ideal for that single cupcake or a slice of warm banana bread, a wedge of cake, etc…. It measures 5.75″ across and stands 1.5″ high. It appears to be cut glass with a silver plated base. Rue’s Depression Era mini-display platter comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
