Rue kept this Tiffany & Company etched crystal bowl (4” high x 6” wide) filled with brightly colored hard candies on a shelf in her china hutch (sorry, but we polished off the candy before we put this item up for sale). Although she used the tarnished silver-plated lid on the bowl, we actually don’t think it is a set. However, since we couldn’t find a match for the lid, and it fits perfectly, we decided to keep them together and sell it just the way she used it (minus the candy). The bowl is marked Tiffany & Co on the bottom and this “set” comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from The Estate of Rue McClanahan.

Featured ItemsRue's "Prompt Script" From "Nuncrackers"
Rue loved all the nun shows she made for and with Danny Goggin. It was a combination of the writing and the team; she really had a ball whenever she went to work on a Danny Goggin project. This is Rue’s original, 8.5″ x 11″, spiral bound “Prompt Script” from the show. The piece comes with prints of the photos posted and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225Rue's Big Brass Heart Cuff [SOLD]
This brass and enamel cuff has hearts painted on it and so it made the cut for Valentine’s Day. There is a small chip in the red enamel where Rue took a dive late one night – we’re not talking – but otherwise it is in solid shape. It measures 2.5″ across, but since it is a cuff you can open or close it as you wish. It is almost 2″ high at it’s center point and weighs 1.8 ounces. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$114.14Bea's Personalized Gift to her Friend Rue in the '70s [SOLD]
Rue McClanahan and Bea Arthur were friends, real friends. I was with Rue the day that Bea died and she was reminiscing about their relationship – with “Maude” and “The Golden Girls” they had worked together for 14 years – and there was a lot of emotion in the stories she told. I also attended Bea’s Memorial Service with Rue, and I can assure you Rue loved Bea. Clearly, the feelings were reciprocated. You can see it in their off camera photos together and you can see it in this gift that Bea had custom made for her friend way back during the “Maude” years in the 1970s. This heavy 13.5″ square mirrored plaque demonstrates Bea’s respect and admiration for Rue’s abilities as an actor with the star symbol next to her name and the word “Superstar,” but it also show Bea’s feelings for Rue with the phrase “Superlove.” We realize this is a high price point for an item on the site, but we believe the piece – a personal one-of-a-kind gift from one Internationally famous celebrity to another – is actually priceless. We want to make sure if someone does buy it, they realize its worth and it will be taken care of accordingly. And, if it doesn’t sell, we’re fine with that, too. It looks really good right here on the office wall and you can’t help but smile every time you look at it.
