Description
This is an unusual hand carved tortoise carved in a heavy fruitwood. It dates to the early 20th century and is quite primitive and rustic, probably carved by a sailor on a ship to chase away boredom on a long sea voyage. The turtle is nicely carved and the shell lifts off to reveal a small storage space within. The wood has a lovely polished finish.
