  • Description
Each Thrór's Key is carefully handcrafted one at a time in precious metal. This item is an officially licensed replica with Middle-earth Enterprises. It is easy to forget that the events of The Hobbit were hinged on a very simple object, a secret key that would open a secret door. This was Thrór's Key. Thorin Oakenshield's Dwarven party desired to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from Smaug The Dragon, more than anything. The answer to the dwarves' quest was a map, a door and a key created in secret by Thorin's grandfather, Thrór. Gandalf presents Thorin with this secret key when the party joins together at Bilbo Baggins home. "Here it is!" he said, and handed to Thorin a key with a long barrel and intricate wards, made of silver. "Keep it safe!" The barrel of the key is engraved in Dwarvish Runes with the same phrase that is found on Thrór's map: "Five Feet High The Door, And Three May Walk Abreast. TH * The TH runes are Thrór's signature. The Dwarven Key pendant measures approximately 48 mm (1 7/8") long, 16.4 mm (5/8") wide and 2.3 mm (just under 1/8") at the thickest point. Each key is hand finished with an antiquing treatment to give the key an aged look. The pendant weighs approximately 5.3 grams. Includes a 24" long rhodium plated chain. With a certificate of authenticity.*
