The 1905 Riley catalogue attributes this to maker 'P' in their code system, which is otherwise taken to be J. Green & Son. However the 1888 Indispensable Handbook credits it to J.H. Steward. The 1909 Tyler catalogue credits it to their maker 'h', which is also applied to other sets believed to be by Green. 

Unless there were two separate versions of the set, it seems most likely that the set was made by Green and marketed by Steward, though this relationship could be the other way round.
