What does this expression mean here?

"The fireworks were by Gandalf: they were not only brought by him, but designed and made by him; and the special effects, SET PIECES, and flights of rockets were let off by him."
The expression I need is written in Caps Lock. Thank you so much in advance!
P. S. In the Russian translation this expression is often ignored, and I would like to understand its meaning.

    Another possible meaning of "set piece" is a piece if stage scenery to make a stage or film set look realistic. Now it is possible a fireworks display could have some type of backdrop or something, BUT judging by the context it looks like the author meant the other meaning listed by the other guy.
