An unusual European Smoothing Plane

Neil Gibb purchased this plane recently and it was in a well-used state.

The type of adjustable mechanism is unusual: it has up and down but no side to side adjustment, once the iron is set you  can turn the lower adjuster which locks the iron in place.

the body is 9 5/16 long by roughly 2 1/2 square of  some kind of fruitwood maybe apple.

Neil thinks it could be from one of our European friends, 

any thoughts would be appreciated.
