Who made a late 1890's SXS twist steel with a full turkey silhouette on the black butt plate?

Gun not in my possession, so not an option.

Iíd think the buttplate might have American origins, but there might be a chance that itís not original to that particular arm.

Obviously made before the statement "That gun's a real turkey!" carries the same meaning it does today.
