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.
Designed by Asprey, the English Garden set of Vide Poches is meticulously hand painted by master painters at one of the finest manufacturers in the world. Each vegetable is matched with a herb which would complement its flavour: pea and mint, asparagus and fennel, radish and parsley. Made from fine porcelain, the vide poche (meaning 'empty pocket' in French) is intended to be a trinket tray used for holding the contents of your pockets, or equally as a beautiful object with which to decorate your home. Please note that this is therefore a decorative item and is not for food use.
Please handle with care and use the plate protectors provided. Excessive turning of lidded items and rough stacking of items may cause damage. Hand wash only with mild detergent and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use abrasives. Not dishwasher safe.
