Many wooden planes around with no manufacturer ID on them. My brother has one handed down from my father. Only the blade has any ID.

You can restore this and use it, just like a wooden plane you could make today.

Flatten the sole, clean off the dirt and oil/wax the body, sharpen the blade and it should work.

You may even be able to get a new blade from Lee Valley or other places.

If the present blade is tapered, you may need to make a new wedge for any replacement blade.
