Pearce of Cornhill Retailed (and possibly Manufactured) Chess Set, mid 19th Century

Jon's main chess page
Joseph Pearce appears in the London Directories from 1846 until 1873, at 77 Cornhill. His primary trade was as a cutler, but cutlers often made plenty of other items, and cotemporaneous cutlers included William Lund, Daniel Stewart, and other chess manufacturers/retailers.
