The first page ends with letter M, then click for the next page:
Alphabetische Liste N bis Z in blue letters (N to Z).
Coat of arms (Wappen) are depicted on the right side.
Hoping you will get lucky; it is probably combined coat of arms by marriage.
(The list is about nobility in German speaking countries, meaning Austria, too).
Search and stay safe.

The description fits perfectly the hatching of right arms on the box. (I thought it was added by marriage).
It was a big family, therefore difficult to attribute the box to any particular member.
