Vanished tool makers: Bishop wood chisel

A vintage tang chisel, with what looks like "Bishop" stamped on the blade.  It has a very slender blade.  Below, compared with a Ward chisel of the same size.  The Bishop chisel is on the bottom.

There was a George H. Bishop company in the U.S., but their products seem to have been restricted to hand saws and scrapers, so I don't think my chisel came from their foundry:
