Hilery had a collection of cigar boxes on a shelf in her "studio" to use in creating cigar box purses. I was looking at them one day and exclaimed over this one that once held Excalibur Royal Sterling cigars !! Since I had been a dealer at the Excalibur Hotel/Casino from 1990 until I retired in 2005, it really caught my eye. The following Christmas, it was part of my gift from her and Adem. It is a perfect home for my employment memorabilia such as service pins, playing cards, and the little aprons we had to wear.
