Vintage Alligator Shaped Nutcracker in Cast Iron
This fun vintage nutcracker takes the classic shape of an alligator. The piece is made of substantial cast-iron and painted the most fantastic shade of Kelly-green.
We love great vintage pieces like this one, they bring a nice sense of warmth and retro charm to a collection or décor. This little gator would look great in a kitchen or on a mantle.
The nutcracker is comprised of two pieces of cast iron: the top of the alligator and the bottom. When the tail is lifted the mouth opens to reveal a row of pointy teeth. Another row of teeth on the top of the alligator's mouth give him a truly "ferocious" look!
Deep criss-cross lines on the alligator's back and tail make a great pattern of "scales". Even his feet are rendered in excellent detail.
There is a cast mark on the underside of the nutcracker that reads "PAT 93675".
There are some areas of wear and paint-loss visible on the alligator's finish, but this is to be expected. Many collectors really enjoy that "aged-look".
Overall, this gator remains in very good vintage condition.
Measurements: 8" tail to snout, 2" wide, 1 7/8" tall, 1 1/4" open mouth when flat on table, 1 3/4" total mouth opening Weight: 10oz
