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 .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 this 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 wards, made of silver. "Keep it safe!"
The barrel of the key is engraved with the same phrase found on Thror's map in Dwarven Runes: "Five Feet High The Door, And Three May Walk Abreast. TH * TH" (The TH runes are Thrór's signature).
Details: The Dwarven Key pendant is solid sterling silver and 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 pendant weighs 5.3 grams in sterling silver.
