A tremendous number of New Zealand artisans have been tasked with the making of realistic props for The Lord of the Rings. They include glassblowers, ceramists, furniture makers, leather artists and metal workers just to name a few.

The props are created in two scales to serve the variety of characters on the project, from Hobbit to Gandalf size. Everything from furniture in the Prancing Pony to vegetables in Bilbo Baggins' garden are produced in both small and large sizes. No props or set dressing is rented on The Lord of the Rings set, every piece is created from scratch for the project.
