A gold and silver-plated chess set, modelled on the hands of Beatles drummer Ringo Starr, has gone on show in a Tokyo department store.
The set was commissioned by fellow Beatle George Harrison in 1973
The piece, commissioned by fellow band member George Harrison in 1973, was displayed at Takashimaya to mark the opening of a new Asprey store.
The London jeweller is selling replica sets for £15,000 each.
Starr apparently learned to play chess during the making of the Sergeant Pepper album, released in 1967.
The "hands", designed by Robin Crookshank, are set in a certain gestures to represent each chess figure, and include the rings worn by the star.
The Takashimaya department store, established in the 1930s in Kyoto as a kimono shop, is now an eight-storey shopping and dining emporium.
