Dado & Rabbet Planes.
With Depth Gauge and Two Spurs.
These Planes are used for cutting grooves away from the edge of a surface. As the Cutter is at an angle, the Plane in use gets a shearing cut; spurs directly in front of the Cutter serve to cut across the grain of the wood and insures a clean cut for that reason. The depth gauge is regulated by the forward thumb screw.
One in a box. Full cases contain 24 Planes.

This series of Dado & Rabbet Planes (Numbers 32 to 38) have floral or ivy patterns cast into their bodies. The numbering system is based on the number of eighths per inch for the given cutter width, so a No. 32 would have a cutter width of two eighths (2/8" or, more correctly, 1/4") and a No. 37 would have a 7/8 inch wide cutter.
The spurs also differ, with early versions featuring wedge-shaped spurs and later ones with the more familiar cloverleaf shaped spurs (similar to the ones found on Dado & Rabbet Planes from other makers such as Stanley Tools).
There are also versions with, or without, a finger rest on the toe or front of the plane.
