Inspired by The Hobbit ® and The Lord of the Rings™, the immortal works by J.R.R. Tolkien, comes the Bronze Thrór's Key™ Key Chain. Each Thrór's Key is carefully handcrafted one at a time in precious metal by the Badali Jewelry artists. This item is an officially licensed The Hobbit 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 * TH"™ (The TH runes are Thror's signature).
Thrór's Key is made of white finished bronze and is hand finished with black antiquing to give the key an aged look. The Dwarven Key charm measures approximately 72.4 mm (2 7/8") long, 25.2 mm (1") wide and 3.7 mm (just over 1/8") at the thickest point. The key weighs approximately 15.1 grams. Includes a nickel plated key ring.
