The Bag End™ Door Pin was inspired by Bilbo Baggins™ front door in The Hobbit ® and The Lord of the Rings™ by J.R.R. Tolkien. Each Bag End Pin is carefully handcrafted one at a time in precious metal by the Badali Jewelry artists and individually inspected for the highest quality. The pin is available in two styles, either a lapel pin (hat tack) or a tie tack. The Hobbit hole door pins are officially licensed jewelry with Middle-earth Enterprises.
The most iconic feature of Bag End, the home of Bilbo Baggins and later Frodo Baggins™, was its beautiful green door. "It had a perfectly round door like a porthole, painted green, with a shiny yellow brass knob in the exact middle"™. The rune found in the top right corner of the door is the secret mark made by Gandalf ® in The Hobbit. The rune was alert Thorin's™ Dwarven party that this was the home of their burglar and treasure hunter. The mark is a Dwarvish bindrune combining the meanings of the "F" and "R" runes. Together the runes indicates that the occupant of the home is in search of a journey for wealth, treasure and adventure and is willing to travel. Or as Gandalf described it, "Burglar wants a good job, plenty of excitement and reasonable reward"™.
