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.
This petite prize is adorned in forget-me-not blue — as if anyone could forget this exquisite little gem. Under five inches tall, it’s a tiny treat for someone special — you? Delicious details in cool shades of blue nubuck and woven horsehair.
The Morgan Mini is Ideal for town, shopping, sightseeing, countryside. The highly original combination of materials make this Morgan Mini unique. The flap is decorated with an artisanal stripe detail created from forget-me-not nubuck & woven horsehair on this bullskin handbag. It is embellished with the exclusive Asprey clasp lock and has a hand finished bullskin shoulder strap.
Asprey uses European hides to create the bullskin, traditionally tanned and drum-dyed to create a leather that is supple and resistant. The colours are rich, transparent and deep and the finishing reveals the true beauty of the natural grain. Horsehair is a wonderful traditional fabric, woven in England since the 18th century. Originally woven from the tails of working Shire horses which were cropped for safety, the horsehair used in this piece is woven with cotton on original wooden looms. Specially selected European bullskin is tanned to emphasize the natural grain of the leather. Drum dyed, the colours are clear and deep, making use of dyes selected for their richness and light fastness. Maintain the beauty of your Asprey bullskin & horsehair handbag to ensure it endures though time. Avoid direct contact with heat, water, light & oil, as well as any situation that is either too humid or dry. Wipe away any moisture as soon as possible. When not in use, replace the custom-made kid suede cushion provided inside the handbag to hold its shape, store it in the dust bag provided and in a clean, dry, temperate atmosphere. Commercial care products are not kind to Asprey bullskin & horsehair handbags. A soft dry cloth is sufficient to maintain the beauty of the leather.
