This sale is for a PAIR of used/pre-owned vintage Real taxidermy Baby Alligators dressed in Festive Outfits (possibly a nod to native Florida Indians or Cubans or ?). They are Florida souvenirs from the 1960's or early 1970's, and came from an estate sale. (A friend at the sale told me she remembers them being sold when she vacationed in Florida in the 1960's with her parents as a child.) While they may not be "politically correct" these days, they are rather funny period collectibles, so I had to name them 'Esther & Stanley'! They are in rather good shape considering their age and that they are real taxidermy gators. They have some loss on the end of their tails, some splitting/small loss at the feet (mostly at Esthers right front foot), Esther's belt might be missing 2-3 beads, yet they have all their teeth as far as I can tell and their hides are in overall very good shape I'd say. Stanley is outfitted with a plastic guitar, neckerchief and woven straw hat, while Esther wears a headscarf with paper flowers, a spotted green velvet ribbon sash and a beaded FLA hip belt from which hangs her beaded moccasins, and a great watch. They really look like they are having a good time in Florida! Or were. They stand around 9 1/2" to 10" tall, and measure about 17" tip of nose to end of tail. They are being sold 'AS IS'. 

You'll be pleased to own these festive baby alligators. A great addition to a kitsch collection and a fantastic conversation piece of a souvenir you will never see sold again. Also a great gift item for a friend or 1960's era buff.                                                                                                                                                                                     

See all the photos for details of Esther & Stanley.                                                                                                                                                                             

I try to describe items as accurately as possible. Please ask any questions before offerding, and check the questions/answers section at the bottom of this listing (it may appear after the photos) for any information which may be of interest and assistance to you also. I will gladly combine multiple items for shipping, please wait for a combined invoice. Please, No International buyers except Canada

Thanks for shopping!

All forms of payment including PayPal are accepted. I ship the day after receiving cleared payment most of the time, though I have 2 days listed as handling time. 

I will ship this item USPS Parcel Post orUSPS Priority Mail for faster shipping. Inclement weather can and often does affect shipping time. Since really only allows the cost of insurance to either be included as a handling charge or included as an increase in the item starting offer price, it is not included on this item. I have not had any problems to date shipping via USPS. I will ship to Canada by USPS First-Class Mail International, and the Customs form will list the item and final winning offer value. Unfortunately, USPS First Class International shipping can not be tracked or insured. (If you want this shipped to Canada and want tracking or insurance, then another shipping method will need to be used and it will cost more. I have not researched a price for this as of writing this listing.) Any Customs charges/expenses are the responsibility of the buyer. I will combine items for shipping when possible (though this may mean the shipping class may need to be changed).  If you have a preference of shipping classification or would like to use a shipper other than the USPS let me know ahead of time, and again prior to checkout as shipping will need to be recalculated. If you are the winning buyer on more than one sale, PLEASE wait till I recalculate shipping and send you a combined invoice for single payment of all items before paying using PayPal or another method. Thank-You!
