This box was made of very hard wood. Thanks to kyratango I found out that the box is made of olive wood. I believe the box was purchase as a Souvenir of a wonderful vacation in the south of France: Hyeres.
I am rather surprised that the box is in almost perfect shape. There are no cracks or other damages. Even the satin padding is in very good vintage condition. The only problem I found are two missing brass nails holding the hinges but I think I can replace them easily.
After finding similar boxes on line, I would date the box to the early part of the 1900's.
Thanks for looking:)
Once again thanks for your help, kyratango!
