Rue’s Manhattan Apartment

Rue's Crystal Bell

During one of her trips to Europe, Rue bought this commemorative crystal bell in a small town outside Manchester, England called Salford. It sat in the box in a cabinet in her living room for many years – and the fact that it remained in the box is certainly why it survived in Rue’s...

Part of Rue's Basket Collection

Rue had a lot of parties and she liked to use baskets on her buffet to feed her guests – well, she actually put stuff IN the baskets to feed us. This group includes seven of Rue’s baskets: a 15.5″ round tray type piece; two 19″ long by 15″ wide bins, they are...

Three Vintage Barvarian Hand-Painted Pin Plates from Rue's Collection

Rue collected hand-painted Barvarian pin plates. Why? You ask. We have no idea. But, we do know she loved the hand-painted flowers and designs, and we know she used them for all sorts of purposes, not just to hold pins – if that is even what a pin plate is for. Anyway, these three...

Rue's Large Ceramic Grape Pitcher

This is a large ceramic pitcher – it is 9″ tall, the mouth is 5.5″ wide, the body is almost 7″ wide, and the handle is 5.5″ long. You can see this large ceramic pitcher on the top shelf in one of Rue’s glass-door cabinets in the kitchen of her Manhattan...

Rue's Set of Thick and Heavy Beer Mugs

Rue wasn’t a big beer drinker, but when she did partake she liked Corona. She kept these thick, heavy beer mugs in the freezer of the Sub-Zero in the kitchen of her Manhattan apartment and when she was going to have a cold one, she often would reach for one of these. Rue didn’t...

Rue's AMBER Depression Era Serving Platter

Here is the second in Rue’s collection of four Depression Era serving platters; this one is amber. The piece is an oval shape with great design around the edge. It is covered with an etched pattern and is in excellent condition. It measures 11.5″ long and 8.5″ across. ...

Beautifully Designed Depression Era Green Plate

We all love the lines of this plate. Something about those molded designs remind us of flowers. Rue was helpless when she came across a piece that had painted flowers or even the line and shape of a flower – she had to have it. This Depression Era green glass plate is in excellent...

A Pair of Rue's Vintage Plates

Here are a matching pair of Rue’s Depression Era green glass plates. These plates have a geometric design that does wonderful things to light. The plates are 6″ across, so they are more for salads or sides than entrees. Remember, Rue believed in using her vintage pieces, no matter...

Pale Green Vase

This beautiful, pale green vase measures 4″ tall by about 2.5″ wide. It is signed by the artist, and that appears to be a person by the name of “Sally.” Rue did know a “Sally,” and she sold seashells down by the seashore – Rue told us that fact over...

Rue's German Handled Plate

This hand-painted plate was made in Germany way back in the day. It is a numbered piece – Number 189 of 6702 made – and we wonder how many of these still exist today? Wouldn’t it be interesting to know the story of how each was lost or destroyed over the years and exactly how...

Pair of Colorful Candlesticks

Aren’t these cool? Rue used them in her Manhattan apartment. They are 5″ high with a base that is 2.5″ across, and they are heavy, too. They aren’t ceramic, we think they might be some sort of a soap stone or something like that. Maybe plaster, but they feel too...

Pueblo Storyteller Sculpture

Rue collected American Indian jewelry, fabrics, drawings, paintings, and ceramics. This is a handmade Pueblo Storyteller figure. You can see it on the shelf in Rue’s library/music room in a photo she posed for the year before she passed away (that is her Golden Apple Award on the shelf...
