A wonderful example of a Lancashire pattern plane from a private collection.

Lancashire pattern planes are normally craftsman made although examples are known by Moseley of London and Gardner of Bristol.

All are attractive in their own right but this one is a little different than most.

Usually handled however the infill on this plane is shaped to fit in the hand.  Once you pick it up it just seems to fit.
