Kumela Armando Jacobino Dolphin
« on: May 07, 2011, 04:41:55 PM »
I recently bought this paperweight which is signed, but can't trace it on any listing of Jacobino's work - only ducks, rabbits and vases. Does anyone know when it was made, and any other info, please.
many thanks

Hi hazelmay, did you mean to post a picture of the dolphin and the signature for us to see?

Hi Rosieposie yes I did! Not very technical I'm afraid and the photos I have are too big to upload. Will have to re-try. I'm pretty sure the signature is genuine, its information on the model I'm curious about. please be patient!!! :ac1:

Re: Kumela Armando Jacobino Dolphin - photos

here are a couple of photos - they don't do the piece justice as it is very finely blown. I welcome any help with this, please.

Hi hazlemay, this link takes you to a glass piece with the Kumela Jacobino signature on......I hope this might help to identify ours as authentic.

BTW, the lips look the same as your dolphin as well!!

hazelmay, I think you did not mention any measurements? if your "dolphin's" height is around 12-14cm it very much seems to be the one known. It is actually known as a "fish" so if you google pictures from Finland you will find pics. (fish = "kala" in Finnish)

Thanks Rosie!
Yes the lips are similar - what is really helpful is the note about controlled bubbles - the dolphin has these too - the whole piece is exceptional I just wish I could find out more about it - I have found info on Jacobino but not the dolphin! well I guess this is a quest and hopefully someone else will have more info - time will tell!!! Thanks again
Hazel

They did have one on Worthpoint, but sadly the picture is no longer there,  but the details match exactly, so it is worth a look.  I put in Kumela Fish Finland, and it came up, but without a photo.  :cry:
