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 Queen's Collection is made in Vienna from finest translucent porcelain and is an exclusive Asprey design. Characterised by its hand-applied stripe motif in marine blue and hand-painted 24ct gold detailing, the collection includes champagne cups and bowls designed to be ideal for serving strawberries. The champagne cups are fully lined in gold, in order better to retain the coolness of the Champagne.
