Yes Nepalese, but no idea how old.
The one with the lion has Shree Sher or Shree Shumsher on the scroll..not very clear..

During WW1 the Nepalese Army did have a battalion called "Shree Sher Battalion" which was stationed on the North West Frontier of India. I don't know if the battalion is still around today.

Regards,
Andrew
