Dear farm experts. I have an original antique 1800s small handmade model from an unknown American inventor. It was just discovered in New York. The owner only knew that it was an inventor's model from the 1860s or 1870s. I have never seen a plow with such an unusual design. What else puzzles me is its very flat bottom. It is almost like some kind of a plow designed to be used on snow, I think. I am attaching some photographs. The model is only 8" long but it is made with great precision of wood and brass. I think the real size plow of such design could be attached

Thank you!

Looks more for cutting ice blocks than plowing ground.

Does anybody else have any ideas? Could it be a corn cutter, a snow scraper, or a sod, turf cutter?
