Vietnam. I was told that this set was Vietnamese, and Munger/III 2000 lists a Vietnamese set with similarities. But I found another, more comparable, set in Munger/III 2000 from Taiwan, so I thought it must be Taiwan. However, February 2023, an almost equal set, but now with original lacquered board signed by "Thanh Ley, Vietnam" appeared. So the set is indeed Vietnamese. I think Munger was not correct this time.
