There is memorial plate on the chair back with citation from the novel, “I. Ilf and E. Petrov. “The twelve chairs”, Chapter XXXV: “Pussycat! Let leave the pursuit of the diamonds and increase the population of Cheboksary… What do you think? It will be very productive!” Cited by M.G. Nolotin, 2011”. But according to the novel this phrase Ostap Bender said in the morning when they sailed in the boat after the escaping from the town Vasuki and saw the town Cheboksary.
The monument was established in 2012 on the boulevard of Merchant Efimov because the heroes of the novel during their pursuit of the treasure had visited the town Cheboksary.
