Johnnos WHATISIT

The answer is … match holder: well done Sue

The box is hollow with a hole at the top and bottom, and the piece of wood sticking out the top is attached to the base at the other end. When filled with matches, the box is lifted up an inch or two and when lowered back down a match will be found resting on the top.
This one will get your brains overheating

A money box?

The piece of wood in the top, looks like it may slide out.

Some sort of carrier, for birds or other animals.

Is it for storing matches, and lighting them.
