Dimensions are for the key itself.
Few escaped the fire of the Dragon Smaug when he fell with death and ruin upon the Dwarf realm of Erebor beneath the Lonely Mountain. Even fewer expected to find King Thror or his son Thrain among the survivors, but against all hope the Longbeards had escaped the sack of the city by way of a secret passage.
Centuries later, the precious key to this back door to the mountain kingdom would find its way into the hands of Thorin Oakenshield, grandson of Thror and the heir to Erebor, and with it, hope of restoring his thone.
The Key to Erebor was designed by Concept Art Director John Howe and created for the film by the artists at the 3 Foot 7 Art Department in Wellington, New Zealand.
This prop replica has been cast from moulds of the original prop taken directly from the 3 Foot 7 Art Department. It is cast in metal (Zinc Alloy) and comes on a stand made of polyurethane.
Large and heavy, it is the kind of key you just know would open something important. Like the back door to a lost Dwarven Kingdom.
The Key to Erebor is part of a range of high end authentic prop replicas from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. All created by the artists in the filmmaking community of Wellington, New Zealand.
So far, Weta's range of prop replicas from The Hobbit movies includes:

Really like The Key To Erebor, it has a weight that makes it feel metallic and so substantial. Add the runes and weathering + stand and it's amazingly realistic and great value. Mind you I wouldn't want to keep it in my pocket... Hide.
