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 throne.
The Key to Erebor was designed by Concept Art Director John Howe and created for the film by the artists at the 3Foot7 Art Department in Wellington, New Zealand. This prop replica has been cast from moulds of the original prop. 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.
Our authentic prop replicas and collectibles are created by the very same artists who have worked on the three films, so effectively they come straight from Middle-earth
Please note: images are of pre-production prototype. Each set is painted by hand and variations will occur. Dimensions are for the key itself.
This is an Open Edition piece.
Weta Workshop’s authentic prop replicas are made by the very same artists and technicians who work on our movies, using the same techniques and materials. We treat our prop replicas with the same level of care, quality and attention to detail that we bring to our film work.
