Hand-painted figures representing the Khan army. (Produced in the Kirghiz SSR, Frunze, the Kyyal Association of folk arts and crafts).In my opinion, this is the most beautiful design of those that were produced! Similar chess sets "Semetey" and "Manas" were produced in the Kyrgyz USSR.
Semetey is a character of the Kyrgyz epic, the son of Manas. In Soviet times, it cost 42 rubles with an average salary of 100 rubles.
