This is what I found on-line about the company:
Founded in 1906 by innovative young engineer Frank Moore, Moore & Wright has been designing, manufacturing and supplying precision measuring equipment to global industry for over 100 years. With roots fixed firmly in Sheffield, England, the company began by manufacturing a range of calipers, screwdrivers, punches and other engineer’s tools.
Thanks for looking,

    Thanks vetraio50 for the appreciation. I'm not sure of the age, I have not been able to find anything on this small of a square that they manufactured. A 6" square is the smallest I found. This box did have a little moisture get in it at one time. I had to clean a small amount of rust off of them, but otherwise in good condition.
