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.

Designed as a promotional item in 1974, this exquisite Backgammon set contains a 24″ x 21″ orange / black mirrored glass playing board with wooden frame surround, complete with tumblers, dice and playing counters. Very few of these boards were manufactured and they rarely surface onto the collectors market.
