The association of this object with the Knights Templar seems doubtful - no evidence is given and the date seems wrong. However, old and interesting.

An antiques dealer has picked up what could be a priceless church relic dating back 1,300 years at a car boot sale.
My car doesn't wear boots, but in the winter, I put chains on the tires... :0)
Yes. The Templars were founded shortly after the capture of Jerusalem in the early 1100s and destroyed by the monster king Phillip the Fair of France in 1307.

"I was wondering where I put that box!"
I am no expert but to me the art work looks Byzantine, not French.

Very cool. Pardon my ignorance, but what the heck is a “car boot sale”? Is that like a flea market or swap meet?

omigod! They’ve discovered the lid of the box that was carrying the Holy Grail!
That must mean it fell out on the road somewhere in England as it was being moved by the Templars.
I can smell a new best-seller from a mile away.
