I watched somebody open a gift box with a custom made, massive pin badge, the sort that you would attach to clothing with a design on the front. They even said it looked like the sort of thing that you'd put on a desk, not wear, despite having the right parts to attach to clothing so it can be worn.
It made me wonder if there is an adjective for this sort of thing?
I know the word skeuomorph for when the form of an item is imitated even when not needed for it's function (like a light bulb that looks like a candle), but this is something that was the function but is not intended to be used. Like candles not intended to be lit (but could be), or a handbag that's not designed to hold items (impractically small volume), it's just an accessory. Maybe even a car that works but is not intended to be driven, just looked at.
I'm not inclined towards the words display as the pin in my first example could be displayed while attached. The handbag might be held, not just displayed in a room. I'd expect a display candle to not be lightable.
Is there a word for these sort of items?
As for example sentences, I have made these ones up to cover my purpose:
Please don't light the candle, it's a <word> candle.
I can't take you to the harbour in the car, it's a <word> car
I didn't wear the pin ze sent me; however I put it on my desk as a <word> pin
Sorry bro, can't put that in my <word> handbag. It's got a zip but there's no space inside.
The queen never wore this into battle, it was a <word> set of armour.
After writing those, I'd be tempted to say 'show' but neither Merriam-Webster nor wiktionary list it as an adjective. I'm sort of taking it from show car but that seems to have a lot of other connotations that don't map over to the other examples.
