would this be maybe Hungarian or Romanian. Has Pfunol monogram. 13. loth and makers mark AW or could AW be a Prussian tax mark?

The German inscription reads "Pfündl". AW is most probably the maker, but without town mark an identfication is very difficult.

Thank you very much for info. These are the only marks on box. I thought this was indeed german made by the engine turned design of wavy lines/diamond shapes on box circa 1850. Found this box and another that had hallmarks unfamiliar will add other box marks on other countries research area.

There is another mark here (red arrow) and I think I recognized at least two letters ``IN``. Try to look carefully for the rest.Good luck.
Kindest regards

Hello AG2012,
Have cleaned area last night. Worn pitted scratched area. If any marks there lost for good. May have been week or poorly struck. The aw and 13 were struck hard enough to show flat patterns on interior gold washed area. You have very good eye sight I may add.

Hi Hose_dk,
no, your "s" is a "f". Pfuendl

Right, even in Schwabacher, ``f`` and ``s`` being very similar, there is a distinctive horizontal line on ``f``.
So, it`s definitively Pfündl

I understand what you mean - here is an S in "Aftenposten"

That type of S was my suggestion.
