The seal reads "Seitei" 省亭, and belongs to Watanabe Seitei 渡辺省亭 (1852-1918).

This design is a close cousin of one in volume 3 of Seitei kachō gafu 省亭花鳥画譜, published 1891:

As you can see, the turtles are essentially identical to those in your piece, but the landscape is different. I'm not sure where this version of the design might come from.
