"Major Taylor" Stem

Can anyone tell what brand stem this might be? There are no markings on it.

Because he was the first big name to use them, the usual reason.

The same reason that a road-style bike is a Lance-Armstrong-bike.

Now, how could you say Major Taylor and Lance Armstrong in one breath? Major was a true cyclist, while Lance would be very much at home riding for the former DDR.
