It's a small rebate plane, possibly Italian, possibly 17th Century. Would have been knocking our Stradivariuses etc.
I fear Mike is attempting to bamboozle us with wood chippings Rog. I suspect it is a table snuff-box in the shape of a blocking plane. Possibly two compartments for various qualities of snuff.Lovely timbers, Mike. If it were a plane (and I'm certain it's not) it would be a draw-plane, the wedge is at the wrong angle to be a push-plane.
1920s Scandinavian home-crafted cigarette box, card-box, mouse-trap or conjuring trick box???The whitish residue around the wedge/handle/thingy bother me ~ Intrigued and mystified at present.
See next blog entry, Saturday 12th September, for the correct answer.
