Crystal Exchange America recently sold a Swarovski Trimlite Alligator for the attractive price of $75! Swarovski collectors know that the Trimlite figurines are some of the more difficult pieces to find, so finding one at this price was a plus!
Swarovski has produced two crystal alligators that I am familiar with:
Trimlite Alligator – 52504. This Swarovski Alligator was produced 1982 through 1988 and originally retailed for $18. The Trimlite Alligator is just under 2.5 long. It has a clear crystal stone for the body, with a lot of gold-colored trim, which is typical of the Trimlite product line. The body stone for the alligator is a former chandelier component. The hole for the component is highlighted in the photo. The Trimlite logo “T” is stamped into the underside of the alligator head metal and is also highlighted in the same photo. The year 1982 is stamped below the Trimlite “T”.
Silver Crystal Swarovski Alligator – 7661 000 005 / 221 629. This Swarovski Alligator was produced 1998 through 2004 and originally retailed for $75. The Silver Crystal Alligator is approximately 3” long. The head, body, legs, and tail are all clear crystal. This alligator figurine has the Swarovski Swan logo on it.
I don’t know of any ‘alligator collectors’, but if you are, Crystal Exchange America still has a couple of all-crystal (Silver Crystal product line) alligators still available in their online store. Swarovski Alligator figurines are located within the Animals category of the store.
