G-i-P Report: Thrór’s Key

Source: TheOneRing.net

Thanks to Earl Carvalho, our friend from TORn, we know that it’s a movie replica, not the actual design of the movie prop! Folks from Badali Jewelry gave a sneak peek at one of the first items in their newly licensed The Hobbit line of jewelry: Thror’s Key!

Engraved on the barrel of the key is the same phrase written in Anglo-Saxon (and not Dwarvish Angerthas Moria) runes that are found on Thrór’s map in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit book:


On the reverse side of the barrel there is probably the rest of the inscription:


We wonder if Anglo-Saxon runes from The Hobbit book and the Middle-earth Dwarvish runes, Angerthas Moria, from The Lord of the Rings Appendices will coexist in Peter Jackson’s movie.

G-i-P stands for Gwaith-i-Phethdain, ‘The Fellowship of the Word-smiths’ or the linguistic website devoted to post-Tolkienian constructions in the “reconstructed” languages of Middle-earth [link].
