A material object produced supposedly by occult means, especially at a seance.
- Supposedly materialized or teleported gifts from the spirits, apports appear at some seances under varying conditions-sometimes tumbling out of a spirit trumpet, for example.
- At the latter dark-room seance, I received an ‘apport,’ an object supposedly transported from the spirit realm.
- He featured the production of apports, the floating-trumpet-with-spirit-voices feat, and something called ‘spirit precipitations on silk.’
Late 19th century: from French apport 'something brought', from apporter 'bring to'.
