Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The Arms are those of a maiden Lady of the Plomstead family of Great Plumstead in the County of Norfolk. This very ancient family came over with the Conqueror in 1066. This box may well have been given as an affectionate token to a Lady member of the Plomstead family by the King. Boxes bearing the portrait of the first Hanoverian King are extremely rare.
