While Elvis Presley took great care to not smoke in public, he often enjoyed small cigars or cigarettes in his free time, and the offered cigarette holder would have been employed to hold his smokes in style. The ivory colored handle adds a sense of elegance to the presentation, but not nearly as much as the holder's case did. The custom-sized receptacle could be mistaken for a tiny violin case, with its luxurious leather outer covering and fine clasp enclosure. Fit for a king.
