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.
Special edition lead free crystal decanter with sterling silver animal head stopper. Made by hand in the Asprey London workshops.
Asprey's famous range of animal head decanters are exactingly handmade in our London workshops above New Bond Street. Each is made using the finest materials by means of a painstaking process. The lead-free crystal is melted and blown only four times a year, and thanks to the difficulty of achieving a product that reaches our standards, the failure rate (even with the most skilled of craftspeople) is 90% or higher, given the Asprey criteria for quality. The sterling silver stopper is meticulously hand-carved; we offer a range of creatures to add zoological variety to your drinks cabinet or bar.
Based above our store on New Bond Street, London, the Asprey workshops are unique. All products are guaranteed.More about the workshops
