“Austrian Upright”  (Austria)

The archetype of the "Austrian Upright" is the Schlechter-Lasker chess set. The set listed here is a derivative. It is not known where these sets were made. Although they crop up in Austria, they do not seem to originate there. They are not made in Czechia, and unlikely in Hungary. That would leave Russia as origin.
