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, this is one of a series of cigar ashtrays featuring patterns inspired by architectural designs and motifs, highlighted with hand painted 22ct yellow gold edges and cigar rests. Made from fine bone china, this is a decorative item and is not for food use.
