Interesting find.  

There is a Scottish thistle.  I can not read the elaborate writing.

I checked on the date and nothing sprang out in relation to this find.  However, that was the date Jack the Ripper was caught and the official government competition for an Australian flag was launched and Emperor Hirohito was born.

Its a bit bent Ant it could have been partially curved, I was thinking along the lines of an urn but its the three central letters that are unusual.

a concert were held in the Jandakoi-hall,
under tho auspices of Mrs. Geo. Willis and
Councillor T. Smith. The concert num
bers included songs by Misses G. and B.[/font]

[font="Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]Willis, a Japanese dance by Misses Willis,
[/font]

Weymins, Turner, Thomas, and Hamp
ton, a Highland fling by Miss MayHamp
ton,
(25 jan, 1901.) So there is maybe the thistle connection?

dux of fourth class May Hampton 19 Dec 1901.


And the school?

It has chanfered holes so it was probably screwed to wood. Maybe she won some dancing comp and they gave her a jewellery box with her name on it.
