The Soviets saw chess as embodying their revolutionary ideals. It was a game of skill, and the USSR prided itself on its intellectual talents. It was cheap, and anyone could play it. And to Soviet leaders, its back-and-forth dynamic reflected the dialectical concept of history espoused by Marxism.
This beautiful chess set was made in Brest, Belarus. The produce date is 15.10.1986. Chess board is really clean, in perfect condition. Chess figures are made of wood, hand painted and beautiful Russian matryoshka style. Chess set has own original, really old-worn carton. There is a Soviet fabric's etiquette on the right bottom side of carton which gives an explanation, that it was used as Souvenir in that time and there are some custom infos. The fabric called "Бретская Фабрика Сувениров(Souvenir Fabric of Brest)" and produced in 1986, 15th of October. Definitely vintage, nice Soviet Design.
