Interesting Birmingham Plane Company Block Plane.
The Birmingham Plane Company operated in what is now Derby, CT. This block plane is the largest of the three sizes they made measuring 7in long and holding a 1 3/4in wide iron. This model was offered with and without a blade adjuster- this example does not have it, nor is the blade prepared to accept an adjuster. It's in fair condition overall and could definitely be used. The lever cap has a pronounced hump where the user's palm rests. As you can imagine these planes are frequently found with cracked caps. This one is intact. the blade is clean and crisp. The sides of the plane flare out a bit and there are small cast nubs to hold which make for a more comfortable and secure grip than other block planes. An interesting plane in solid user condition

Very Early Flat Ovolo Molding Plane.
This plane has no maker's marks I can see. It does have many owner's marks, most of which are over-stamped. There is an early looking "IE" mark that I believe could be be the maker's mark but I'm not positive. The plane looks like a mid-18th century British molding plane to me. It has extremely broad, flat chamfers with a deep gouge cut at the transition points. The step is coved and the wedge finial shape is very distinct. The plane is good and clean, free of damage and only showing the expected patina for a tool of this age. the blade is exceptionally clean. It's a nice example in great shape- perfectly usable and a nice addition to a collection of early molding planes
