The carving on he side:
元寶 ― Yuanbao - Sycee, name of a type of silver or
gold ingot currency used in China (Simply means money.
張大旬 - Zhang Daxun (Surname and given name) 

I hope an expert on seals will come up to comment on the dating.

Dear I Nagy,

I would expect this seal to have been made in the first quarter to first half of the 20th century. The crude carving and the scratchy decoration are not uncommon.

I applaud your reading of the characters - I chose not to bother as they were so badly done. However, do you think the middle character might have been 天 rather than 大.
