I working on basic ecommerce web site and need some input on the class design for products and items.
The idea is that a product can have different item numbers. The item may have different color, size or price, but still the same product.

I started the products class.
Would I create another class called item?
Let's say I need to access properties from both classes, would I create another class for this or inherit from the other?

My Products database table
ProductID
ProductName
Description
Image

My Items database table
ItemID
ProductID
ItemNumber
Description
Cost
Price

public class Product
{
    private Guid _productID;
    private string _productName;
    private string _description;    
    private string _image;

    public Guid ProductID
    {
        get
        {
            return _productID;
        }
        set
        {
            _productID = value;
        }
    }
   

    public string ProductName
    {
        get
        {
            return _productName;
        }
        set
        {
            _productName = value;
        }
    }

    public string Description
    {
        get
        {
            return _description;
        }
        set
        {
            _description = value;
        }
    }    

    public string Image
    {
        get
        {
            return _image;
        }
        set
        {
            _image = value;
        }
    }
