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 island of Murano in the Venetian Lagoon has been making beautiful glass since the factories of Venice were moved there in 1291 to avoid the danger of fires from the furnaces burning down the mainly wooden buildings in Venice itself. Asprey has collaborated with one of the oldest Murano glass manufacturers on this set of six mouth-blown champagne flutes. Exclusive to Asprey, the coloured stem of each glass is hand-drawn. Stems are in red, aqua, orange, yellow, green and blue. Each flute is entirely hand-created which can lead to slight variations is height and stem thickness.
