Chinese Green and White Ivory Set in English Motif, 19th Century

A very interesting set that is clearly of 19th century Chinese manufacture, but with the very unusual feature that the White King, Queen, Bishops, and Knights appear to be modeled in the same style as English ceramic pieces of the 18th century. I've seen this type of set only a few times before.
