Curious but clueless about this wooden box. It's open-hand sized and about 8cm high.

First thought is it contained something ceremonial to wear in the Army or by a Lord

I tracked the shield image down to the Norwegian coat of arms - looks like it might be an antique Norwegian box. Don't know what for yet.

Please quote the information from the eBay listing rather than just the link because eBay deletes them after 3 months and the info will be lost to future searches

Sorry - it's a link to an almost identical one which sold on ebay last year for 151.
There still wasn't much information about it other than date estimated to c.1900 so I've written to the Norwegian folk museum to see if they can let me know anything more about it.

Ok, but eBay/Etsy/etc links are normally deleted as we are a non commercial site so best to quote the info.
