Properties

 

fake, specially created objects (sculpture, furniture, tableware, decorations, weapons, and such) used in theatrical productions instead of real things. Properties should be cheap and sturdy and have an exaggerated, simplified outward form. (The reproduction of details not visible to the audience is usually omitted in the production of properties.) The theatrical workman who creates properties is called a property man.
