"Then they hung up two yellow hoods and a pale green one; and also a sky blue one with a long silver tassel. This last belonged to Thorin, an enormously important dwarf, in fact no other than the great Thorin Oakenshield himself."
- The Hobbit, Chapter I: An Unexpected Party

" 'Don't dip your beard in the foam, father!' they cried to Thorin who was almost bent on his hands and knees. "It is long enough without watering it."

"It was Thorin, but you could only have told it by his golden chain, and the the colour of his now dirty and tattered sky-blue hood with tarnished silver tassel."

" 'Thorin son of Thrain son of Thror King under the Mountain!' said the dwarf in a loud voice, and he looked it, in spite of his torn clothes and draggled hood. The gold gleamed on his neck and waist; his eyes were dark and deep."

"Out leapt the King under the Mountain, and his companions followed him. Hood and cloak were gone, they were in shining armour, and red light leapt from their eyes. In the gloom the great dwarf gleamed like gold in a dying fire."
