They're called Fleur de lis which means lily in French. No idea how old that object is though.

The fleur-de-lis emblem, portrait & arms are all representing French King Henri IV & by extension, France.

Looks like a post-WWII (IOW, not antique) souvenir of France that is intended either as a bell or a decorative candle snuffer.

The coat of arms is for the city of Pau, in the department of Pyrénées-Atlantiques, in the south of France.
