    A lovely fellow!

    Marked "Geschützt" (German for registered).

    Beginning of 20th century.

    Measurements:
    Length: 4 7/8" (from the head to the tail)
    Width: 3 3/4"
    Height: 1 1/4" (from the bottom of the feet to the head)

    The pen wipe brush was lacking...
    I ordered vacuum cleaner round brush accessory to get long horse hair to rebuilt the pen wipe into turtle's back shape!

    For now, I put a foam pad covered in felt to complete the little critter as a pin cushion :-)

      He's very realistic! This is my in-law's house! He rescues giant tortoises. (And Koi carp & turtles!) And the tortoise breed, too.
