An unusually small wooden badger plane by VARVILL of York - circa 1829 - 1840

Also stamped 'Z' on the top of the stock behind the bed, believed to be the mark of the plane maker/hand.
As with all badger rebate planes the blade iron, cap iron and wedge are skewed on this example. An unusual addition being that the top of the handle is also skewed - please see close-up image

The cap iron is marked 'VARVILL SHEAR STEEL'.
Previous owner's stamps 'RD.DORRICUTT' and 'T.DAVIS'.
