Tracklisting & More Information

RoR (Ringo or Robin) was a design company created by Ringo Starr and his business partner Robin Cruickshank. Formed in the early 1970's RoR was responsible for creating a variety of items, including official Apple merchandise, along with various other boutique goods ranging from novelty executive toys and desk ornaments to fully functional furniture and decorative mirrors. The venture was not a great success and their partnership ended in 1976. Now, almost 30 years on, their designs are very rare, especially the many items manufactured from glass, which by their very nature were delicate and easily chipped or broken.

The Playing Board

The board measures approximately 24" x 21" and framed in finegrain wood. The board surface is mirrored glass with the playing area printed in orange and black with a green centre divider. In the very centre of the board is the "© RoR LTD 74" text in green.
The board shows evidence of light use but remains in fantastic condition.

The Accessories

30 wooden playing counters, 15 coated in dark brown lacquer, 15 coated in a beige lacquer. All exhibit signs of light usage but NO damage or excessive fading, beautifully manufactured.

Four original regular dice, one special backgammon dice, made from lacquered wood. These accessories are housed in a hinged lid, 5½" x 12" x 3" black cardboard box with seperate compartments for each of the dice, the silver tumbers and the two different coloured counter sets. The box is finished with a large 'R-O-R" sticker on the lid. The box shows some light edge scuffing & one corner has given way but it is still in very respectable condition indeed.

Also in the box is a booklet of backgammon rules & a large fold out R-O-R headed 'Backgammon For Beginners' sheet.

Also included are two silver coloured plastic tumblers stylishly finished in silver - both show signs of use with some light scratches to the finish, however nothing to spoil the overall beauty of the piece.

All the above accessories are original components from 1974 - nothing is missing, nor has anything been replaced.

As previously mentioned these sets rarely surface onto the collectors market, however when they do they are usually in a far worse condition than this one, which is in a comfortable 'used but well looked after' state.

Due to its delicate nature we are unable to ship this item outside the UK. For UK delivery options please contact us first - if you can collect this item in person it would be the safest method.
