      Here's one with some information about the Parrot one on ebay:

      https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vtg-Antique-Wright-Inc-1947-Cast-Iron-Parrot-Macaw-Bottle-Opener-/332647727042

      I hope this helps, these have been reproduced for years, so you have make sure that it's not a repo., but they all are collectable! :^)

      Here's some info on the Alligator Bottle opener:

      John Wright cast iron Alligator Bottle opener F135

      This Bottle Opener has also been reproduced, from the early 1960's on, so even repo. ones are still old, just not rare, so you have to be sure that it's a original, if there are any marks on the bottom, John Wright, or just F135. I think both the Parrot, and the Alligator were originally made in the 1930-40's. Wilton also made them, and also reproduced them, but are still very collectable.
      The Wilton Alligator is 1 1/4"x6", the John Wright is 3 3/4"x2 3/4"
      There were several Parrot on the Perch versions made, but 5 1/2" should be the height of yours, and signed JW if original.
      I hope this helps, the sizes I got from Kovels 2008 Antiques & Collectibles. I have a couple of the Parrots, but not the Alligator, and no expert! :^D
      I hope this helps, good luck! :^)
