    These are "Zeitzünder für Sprühbüchse 37", mechanical time fuzes with a 1-5 min adjustabel delay.
    There were not used for demolition work, but were fitted on the "Sprühbüchse 37", which was a steel cilinder containing 10 liters of Mustardgas.

    The cilinder had 2 fuzes fittings, one on both end.
    Fitted to the upper side (where the handle was), the fuze lit a small charge which ensured dispersion in the air, contaminating somewhere between 280 and 480 m².
    The other side had a fitting with a detonator and small charge, which ensured 150 m² of contaminated soil after detonation.

    I never heard of the Sp.Bü. 37 ever being used, but these fuzes are on the market every now and then.
    But 4 fuzes in a box; that's a nice find.
    Congratulations
