Our dedicated team of experts regularly travel to all parts of the world for client consultations to ensure a high quality end result. Working with the clients’ brief, our in-house design teams create original initial plans and then a production schedule is tailored to meet timeframes and budgets. The final design is then placed in the hands of Asprey’s highly skilled craftsmen who bring the object to life in Asprey’s own workshops.

The Asprey workshops, on New Bond Street, have been smithing silver for over 200 years, skillfully creating pieces of extraordinary beauty and durability. The range of silver pieces is a stunning example; the gentle curves and nuances of character display the immaculate craftsmanship that Asprey has always possessed. Every design is exclusive to Asprey, blending classic themes with traditional silver manufacturing techniques.

The Ringo Starr Chess Set

Asprey, together with designer Robin Crookshank created a spectacular bespoke chess set in 1973 for Ringo Starr.

Every chess piece was individually designed in the shape of a hand, set in a certain gesture to represent a figure of the chess set. The 'hands' were meticulously fashioned after Ringo's hands down to the smallest detail, including the rings worn by the star.

The sets were created by Asprey craftsman in the workshops situated above the store. It was made using traditional methods - modelled in wax and cast in sterling silver and gold plated for the gilt pieces.

Gold Signature Bar

The Gold Signature Bar was created in 2005 for Chivas Regal to celebrate their 18 year old blend scotch whisky.

Using sterling silver, sycamore and walnut woods, alligator, suede and etched glass, the craftsmen created a bar that is 26" wide, 72" long and 42" high. There are side panels and hidden drawers lined in blue velvet concealing stools, bottles of Chivas Regal, crystal glasses, a backgammon set and a humidor; making this piece unmistakably Asprey.
