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 and hand painted by Herend, this beautiful collection of animal figurines is made in tiny quantities. Each animal takes around a month to hand paint by one of a select group of Master Painters. The painting, the backgrounds and the platinum trims all have to be fired separately.
