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 Asprey Melon Coffee Set in fine porcelain has been expertly hand-painted to emulate a cantaloupe melon, with small details such as the hand-painted seeds in the coffee cups making the piece distinctly Asprey. This set is made to a design exclusive to Asprey in collaboration with one of the last remaining exclusively hand-painted porcelain manufacturers in the world, founded almost two centuries ago.
