That big, wide handle configuration makes me think this plane was pushed “sideways” through the work. You’d grab the wide handle in your left hand and the knob in your right hand to push it. The 2 fences appear to hold the piece (perhaps a dowel?) and the plane blade may have cut a groove into it as it was pushed along the length of the dowell. Uses 2 fences to hold the wood straight as it fed thru the plane.

But what do I know? I’m just a woodbutcher who was the first of 109 views to post a GUESS . :-)
