The question is-who made it and when?
Here is another European plane, (Skewed Rebate). This plane is
made of a dark beech and also has an
F PICK blade. It is marked
C BREITSCH on the front and rear. This could be the name of a
tool dealer or the owner of the tool.This plane appears to have had
the sole shaved.
