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 as part of a set of geometric vide poches, this piece features colourful patterning and is hand finished with platinum. Made from fine bone china, 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.
