"Hallett of High Holborn" Chess Set, 19th Century

 
     
     
Jon's main chess page
This pattern of chess set is, for some reason, associated with William Hallett of High Holborn, early Victorian London. However, I have yet to see any evidence that definitively associates these sets with Hallett. This style is indeed English and 19th century, and rare, but that is as far as I can conjecture. If the set was made by William Hallett, then it would be dated to the 2nd quarter of the 19th century.
