In the 1950s and 1960s the Zagreb chess set was one of the most popular chess sets used at international chess tournaments, particularly at the World Championship held in Zagreb in 1959. This is the reason you can often see this set called the Zagreb '59. They are also refered as Russian pieces because of the the special design of the knight head down and its particular presence.
