It is easy to forget that the events of The Hobbit hinged on a very simple object, a secret key that would open a secret door. This was Thrór's Key. More than anything,Thorin Oakenshield's Dwarven party desired to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from Smaug the Dragon. To do so, the Dwarves' would require a map, a door and a key created in secret by Thorin's grandfather, Thrór. Gandalf presents Thorin with the secret key when they meet 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 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).
Details: Thrór's Key is made of white hand finished bronze, with black antiquing to give the key an aged look. The Dwarven Key pendant measures 72.4 mm long, 25.2 mm wide and 3.7 mm at the thickest point and weighs 15.1 grams.
