Stewart Maiden was the head golf professional at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta Georgia.  He was best known for teaching Bobby Jones the game. Maiden was also an accomplished clubmaker.

This set of stainless steel irons with "B'Bow & arrow shafts (an arrow extends through the word "B'Bow" on the shaft) is marked "Designed By Stewart Maiden for Hillerich & Bradsby" on the back of each head. 

This iron set consists of a 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10 (putter) and the 8 iron is a wedge of sorts, with a nice wider-than-normal flange sole—at least for when these clubs were made. The set has its original shafts and leather grips. The grip caps of the irons have the number of each respective iron on a white disc of sorts. The number 2 is worn off its disc, and the putter does not have a white disc/number at all.

The really neat feature of these irons is the side of the shaft opposite the target at impact is FLAT.  The shaft was not used much, and is in wonderful condition.
