I collect turtles made in glass plants. They are found is every color that a glass bottle or decorative piece of glass was made in.

Does anyone else collect turtles

The turtle in this photo is dated 1879. I’ve collected glasshouse turtles for 30 years and this is the first one I’ve seen that is dated.

I love your turtle first of all. I do have a turtle that is made for a tea light. It is insulator heavy. Do not know anything about it. I just like the green glass mostly but also that it is a turtle.
