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. 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 the 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 words, made of silver. "Keep it safe!"
The barrel of the key is engraved in Dwarven Runes with the same phrase that is found on Thror's map, "Five Feet High The Door, And Three May Walk Abreast. TH * TH" (The TH runes are Thrór's signature).
Details: The Dwarven Key pendant measures 48 mm long, 16.4 mm wide, and 2.3 mm at the thickest point. Each key is hand finished with black antiquing to give the key an aged look. The barrel of the key is engraved in Dwarvish Runes "Five Feet High The Door, And Three May Walk Abreast. TH * TH" from Thrór's map. The pendant weighs approximately 6.6 grams.
