Taken by the Elves and unwilling to confess the true reason for his trespass to King Thranduil™, Thorin Oakenshield™ and his Dwarf companions are thrown in the Elvenking’s dungeons to rot. A hundred years is nothing in the life of an Elf, while to the Dwarves just a few days delay might cost them their quest.

How will they escape?

The Mirkwood Gaol Key was designed by 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. It is cast in metal (Zinc Alloy) and comes on a stand made of polyurethane.

This is clearly a key of significance, firmly backed up by its heft and the attention to detail.

The Mirkwood Gaol Key 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.

Dimensions above are for the key itself, the stand adds about ½ inch (12 mm) to the height.

So far, Weta's range of prop replicas from The Hobbit movies includes:

A Gaol Key to the Mirkwood Realm!

This key is a very nice collectible for not that much Money.... Read more.

This key is a very nice collectible for not that much Money. The detail is very good and I like the rusty details especially.
The mount is great because it looks really elvish and not that angular like the Key to Erebor stand,

Great work weta! Hide.

Mismatch : photo/reality

Sadly the paint job on mine isn't anywhere close to the photo..... Read more.

Sadly the paint job on mine isn't anywhere close to the photo.. It doesn't have any rusty bits and there's barely any dark paint on it... I guess that happens from time to time.
It's a shame that for some items there's a mismatch between the photo and what you get (like for Kili runestone)..

Still it has a lovely weight to it and still think Weta is great ! I was just a bit unlucky with mine. Hide.
