Little hard to tell without more pictures and in focus. Without any makers marks to say otherwise, it seems like a user made plane.

Looks to be a shop-made moulding plane, doing a wide cove? It’s hard to tell for sure, but the blade looks curved though the bottom looks kind of flat.

Are you considering purchasing it?

I think it may be a wooden scrub plane. The iron looks quite thick and appears to be rounded at bottom

A wide rabbet plane perhaps modified to cut
a cove on the left edge.

Shampeon, it’s on EBay. Go for it! I think it’s pretty cool—but I have no need for it.

I agree with Canadianchips that it could be a scrub plane. The sole looks like it might have a little rocker from toe to heal, but that might be from wear. In any case it is very elegant.
