The Major Prop Emma Watson Took From The Set Of Harry Potter

During the filming of the "Harry Potter" film franchise, prop masters designed thousands upon thousands of intricate pieces of on-screen mythology. The sheer scale of the many props used throughout the series is truly fascinating. According to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Twitter accountmore than 3,000 wands were constructed throughout production on the series. Of course, because the details included in J.K. Rowling's stories go well beyond that of wands, the film series contains quite a few more notable props, many of which are currently on display at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour in Leavesden (via Entertainment Weekly). 

However, fans may be disappointed to know that not every prop made its way to the museum. During the filming of any notable production, it's common for stars to make away with a favorite prop or two. After spending more than a decade on the film series, we think Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint all earned the right to at least a few keepsakes. According to an interview with Watson, the prop masters on "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" agreed. So, what did Watson decide to take with her after she wrapped work as the brightest witch of her age?

Emma Watson took a time-turner and two other special items

"I asked for permission to take Hermione's time-turner from the third movie, and the cloak, and my wand," Watson said (via Collider). "So those are my three things that I took with me."

Of course, any fan of the "Harry Potter" franchise is sure to understand why each of these items is special to Watson. In "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," Professor Minerva McGonagall (Dame Maggie Smith) grants Hermione a time-turner so she can properly attend each of her classes, some of which take place at the same time. The magical device allows the young witch to travel backwards in time. Towards the end of the film, the device proves vital in saving the lives of Sirius Black (Gary Oldman), Harry Potter's godfather, and Buckbeak, a hippogriff doomed to be slaughtered.

The latter two items are much more typical of students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Throughout the eight films in the series, Hermione's cloak design changes occasionally. It's not immediately clear which cloak Watson is referring to in this statement, but we can be sure whichever one she wound up with is emblazoned with a Gryffindor house crest. According to the "Harry Potter" books, Hermione's vine-wood wand is about 10 inches long and possesses a dragon heartstring core. Of course, the wand used for the films is much more practically constructed. From the third film onwards, her wand maintains a vine-like design, something that the "Harry Potter" prop master chose specifically for her. 

We're sure Watson keeps each treasured item in a safe place.
