Rue's Random "Set" of Pink Cups and Saucers

We know our descriptions often are WAY too long, but there is so much to tell you. Here we have four pieces from Rue’s collection of Depression Era glassware; and they are four pink pieces that don’t make up a set, but Rue used them as such. In fact, in the photos posted, you can...

Rue's "Mickey & Minnie" Mugs [SOLD]

Rue called this pair of mugs “Mickey and Minnie Mouse.” You’d be getting tea or coffee and she’d say: “Give me Minnie and you take Mickey.” Or, she’d set her coffee down somewhere and lose it – which she always was doing – and she’d...

Rue's Vintage Roses Plate

Even though this plate of Rue’s is stamped “La Perl Roses – Germany” it turns out the company that made it was located in The United States. The Wheelock family lived in the Midwest and was selling porcelain plates before the Civil War. However, since the best porcelain...

Rue's Pair of Vintage Sorbet Style Champagne Glasses [SOLD]

Don’t you just love the twisted ribbon etching on Rue’s pair of champagne glasses? They are so simple and elegant. Rue often drank champagne at her parties, and at brunch, and when there was something to celebrate. I guess we could have just written “Rue often drank...

Rue's Set of Five Deco Porcelain Bowls

This set of bowls was made in Japan back in the days when “Made in Japan” represented the highest of quality. We hardly ever see that “Made in Japan” stamp on anything anymore. Anyway (that was a lot of any in a row, eh?), these are the perfect cereal/soup bowls because...

Rue's Green Depression Glass Snack Bowl and Wine Glass

Like many of us, Rue liked to relax with a little snack and a glass of wine (or two) at the end of a long day. As we’ve mentioned, she always made use of pieces in her collection; they were DEFINITELY not for display purposes only. On occasion, Rue would pair up this little Depression...

English Porcelain Vessel From Rue's Kitchen (NEW INFORMATION FROM FAN)

Rue owned this screw-top porcelain vessel for many, many years. In the photo shown, you can her first husband with one of Rue’s cats and the vessel is on the shelf in the background. This photo was taken about 30-years ago – which was 30-years after they had divorced. The two had...

Rue's Super Skinny Champagne Flutes

Let’s make something clear right off the bat: this price is for TWO of Rue’s super skinny champagne flutes. Rue still has three left, and we intend to send the purchaser all three, we just have no faith that these really tall, really skinny stemmed glasses can all make it anywhere...

Vintage Cup and Saucer From Rue's Collection

Here is another beautiful cup and saucer from Rue’s collection. The pieces are marked on the bottom, and the cup even has all sorts of numbers about which we know absolutely nothing. The saucer measures 5.5″ across and the cup is 3″ high with a 2.5″ opening. ...

Rue's Little Handled Bowl

We don’t know if this Depression Era, pressed glass piece of Rue’s is meant to be a sugar caddy or a candy dish. Rue used it as as a candy dish, but doesn’t it look like it ought to have a matching creamer? Anyway, it doesn’t, so we’ll go with candy dish. The...

Rue's Stunning Rose Plate

Since we posted that other old rose plate of Rue’s that is faded from decades of use, we thought we’d post another one of Rue’s rose plates, but this one is miraculously pristine. It isn’t that Rue used it any less than the other, either, it must have something to do...

Set of Rue's Pink Depression Era Glass Side Plates

Rue actually owned a dozen of these matching pink Depression Era plates, but we’ve broken them down into three lots of four plates each so more people can get a set. These side plates are about 6″ across with 3.75″ base rings on the bottom. The have interesting shapes and...

Pair of Rue's Vintage Pin Plates (Was Three, But One Sold)

We actually previously posted this lot of three of Rue’s vintage Barvarian pin plates, but then we sold one and took it down. There was this fan, see, and she had a limited budget, see, and she really wanted the blue plate at the top, see, and so we sold it to her. But then, we pulled...

Rue's Old and New Shot Glasses

It seems like we write so many postings having to do with Rue drinking, Rue enjoying drinking, or Rue having had too much to drink, etc… Let us make it perfectly clear, Rue was NOT some sort of a slusho or anything like it, she just liked to have a nip here and there. Anyway, we’ve...

Rue's Pair of Pewter Candlesticks

Rue’s pewter candlesticks are LONG – over 10 inches – and they hold 1″ thick candles. They are heavy, too. These candlesticks are very dramatic statement pieces, and when you set them on the table for a romantic dinner for two, and insert some 18″ smooth tapers,...

Rue's Betta Fighting Fish

Rue had an extensive collection of little animal figurines and this crystal Betta Fighting Fish is a piece in that collection. She kept the figurines on glass shelves in her foyer, glass shelves in her master bathroom, and in a curio cabinet in her dining room. She moved the collection from...

Rue's Carved Marble Sea Lion

Rue’s little sea lion is carved out of such an interesting marble; this might be “fossiliferous,” but we aren’t certain. We do know that the miniature sculpture measures 2″ long by .75″ wide, at its widest, and it stands just over 1.5″ tall. ...

One of Rue's Backyard Sconce Planters [SOLD]

If you look in the photo posted of Rue you can see a pair of these plaster sconces hanging on the fence in the yard of her Manhattan apartment. We don’t know where one of them is, so we’re only offering this one now. The photo was taken after Rue’s stroke when we were...
