Props from The Omen, An American Werewolf in London, Saw plus more to go under the hammer in upcoming London auction
Prop Store sells original movie props and costumes and related memorabilia, regularly hosting live and online prop and costume auctions. Over 8,000 items are also available for sale at fixed price on www.propstore.com.
Operating since 1998, Prop Store founder Stephen Lane’s love for movies led him to begin hunting for the same props and costumes that were used to create his favourite films. He found that he could not only provide collectors with access to their most coveted pieces, but also establish archival standards for a new, pop-culture hybrid of fine art and memorabilia collecting – prop art. Prop Store handles prop disposal, sale, archive and auction services to production companies and distributors as well as fixed price item sale on its website.
