The plane has a curved metal handle at the rear of the plane; this handle is likened to an animal's tail so this type of plane is often called a tailed plane or more specifically a squirrel plane.
This type of plane is also often referred to as a model makers plane, violin makers plane or a pattern makers plane as these were the core trades which used this type of plane.
A number of these planes had a blade marked 'Stanley, SW (Sweetheart), made in USA'.
