    Thank you for having a look Shrinr. Ahh both, no wonder i wasn't sure. Is it a tortoise or turtle & is its date right. I found some others that looked similar which just said post 1940.
    Also would you look at this, i was told its c.1900, which looks right but if there's anymore you can tell me that would be great.
    Thanks
