This usable seal box bases on an original find and was used to close papyrus scrolls or wax tablets.
Important documents and contracts were closed at the presence of witnesses and secured with a seal to avoid later manipulations. The wax tablets were closed with a cord and knoted inside of the seal-box. The seal was placed over the knot with sealing wax  and the lid was closed. This protects the seal and ensures, that the tablets could not be opened again without cutting the cord (see pic. 2, the process is demonstrated with the enameled seal box no. 445201 ).
