A great many old single and double guns were built by large companies like Crescent Arms for catalog sales stores like Sears, Wards, hardware stores, and anyone who was willing to pay them to make up a custom stamp with their name.
There were literally thousands of these store brands, most unknown today.

Without more identifying information, it's going to be very difficult to know who actually made it.
Hopefully someone who knows will post.

Blackfield W was a trade name used on shotguns made for, and sold by, Chicago retailer Hibbard, Spencer & Barlett. Maybe if we had good pics somebody could identify the maker, but it's a long shot.
