They are German nuttock chafers, Around about 1450 - 1500, early Renaissance.

@farmerman,
You might be right, the plinths are definitely Narnian.

@izzythepush,
They look a little like winsome Franjulators if you squint.

@jespah,
And what do you think about that banana-like "trademark"?
I suppose, it's an early condom - less a trademark but a sign for the purpose: it's a condom box. (Those could be found quite frequently in rural grocer shops during the Middle Ages.)

@Walter Hinteler,
It was embarrassing for monks to head into grocery stores in the Middle Ages, looking for condoms. The squires would all yell, "Price Check!"
