Hobbit Sterling Silver Bag End Door Necklace - HBT-04
Hobbit Sterling Silver Bag End Door Necklace
Sterling silver Bag End Door Necklace from our jewelry lines inspired by The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings TM, the immortal works by J.R.R. Tolkien. Each Hobbit hole door is carefully handcrafted one at a time in precious metal by the Badali Jewelry artists. This item is an officially licensed replica with Middle-earth Enterprises.
The most iconic feature of Bag End, the home of Bilbo Baggins and later Frodo Baggins TM, is its beautiful green door. "It had a perfectly round door like a porthole, painted green, with a shiny yellow brass knob in the exact middle". The runes in the top right corner is the secret mark made by Gandalf to alert Thorin's Dwarven party that this was the home of their burglar and treasure hunter. The mark is a Dwarvish bindrune combining the meanings of the "F" and "R" runes. Together the runes indicate that the occupant of the home is in search of a journey for wealth, treasure and adventure and is willing to travel, or as Gandalf described it, "Burglar wants a good job, plenty of excitement and reasonable reward".
The Hobbit hole door necklace is cast in solid sterling silver. The door pendant measures approximately 25.5 mm (1") top to bottom including bail, 21.1 mm (just under 7/8") wide and 2.3 mm (1/8") thick. The pendant weighs approximately 5.1 grams. The Bag End Door pendant is hand finished with a rich green enamel. Each door knob is plated with 24k. gold to give it it's distinct "brass" finish.
