    Just a guess but perhaps a soap box? Aluminium would be useful for storing something that gets damp.

    Could be.. But normally they used bakelit boxes to store soap.. I was thinking bread tin or something like it?

    Could be an issue container for any number of things.
    It may be difficult to determine exactly what though.

    With the Ges. Gesch mark showing patent protection, this in not a box for some mundane item. Ralph could well be correct, or possibly some medical/surgical device container is another guess.

    First what comes to my mind about those boxes is that maybe those was used for some medical equiment, as Anderson also mentioned.
