Here is my turtle bell tale. Last Spring my husband, sons and myself spent 10 days in Barcelona and Madrid. We took a side trip to Toledo and I too went on the hunt for a turtle bell. I found the “door bell” type but in Toledo. It would be nice to go back to Toledo for at least an overnight to see if one could actually watch the making the the shell. Toledo is a built on a hill with winding streets and old buildings, very interesting. However, my story ends differently from yours, we now have a “modern” turtle sitting next to the wind-up variety. I’ll let you know how long the battery lasts, as I wondered that myself. To non-bell collectors both gather more interest than some of the other bells in my collection.
