Never heard of the brand, sorry. Most likely, made by some company that stamped whatever was requested on the thing. Crescent and HD Folsom come to mind.

Pics would REALLY help the ID.....

"James Bakewell Warrilow was in business in Chippenham, Wiltshire (England) from 1884 or earlier until around 1917."
