We’ve got a diverse collection of period props dating from the 1890s to the present day. We have a particular specialism in art glass and ceramics, household items and a unique selection of WW2 packaging and ephemera. That said, our prop hire range is varied and always expanding.
We don’t have all our items listed on our website because there are simply too many of them. We welcome all our customers to visit us to browse our props in person at our West Sussex site.
Of course! We are specialists in period prop curation. If you know what scene you want to create, but aren’t sure what props are suitable for the period, we can help. We enjoy curating props for specific requests. From ‘a fully stocked bathroom cupboard from 1988’ to ‘items on a kitchen dresser in 1950,’ we can find and curate exactly what you need.
