Ringo Starr's Chess Set
In 1973 Asprey, with designer Robin Crookshank, created a bespoke chess set for The Beatles' drummer Ringo Starr. Every piece was modelled on Ringo's hands.
The reinterpreted 167 Swirl motif takes inspiration from the decorative ironwork surrounding Asprey's flagship store on New Bond Street, London.
The collection is exclusive to Asprey and was designed in house and produced by one of the few remaining high quality producers in Stoke on Trent, England, an area historically famed for its ceramics industry. It is designed either to be used on its own as a dinnerware set in classic style, or else to be mixed with our other collections.
