Can't help with the sig. but that is certainly a "rolled in frit" weight.

My first thought was "Langham Crystal" BUT the 'h' is non existent and the number is typical of the way many USA glass pieces are signed.  So I suspect we should be looking for an USA connection.

Reckon it could be an Italian weight. looking at the engraved name, or should I say etched, and the last few letters look Italian to me, a Murano weight perhaps?

I've just received in the post a nice weight with an impressed mark in the base which has 'ELWOOD' and 'IND' beneath it, above this is what I can only describe as a stylized 'peacock'. Any ideas? I'll upload a picture if needed.

I think the post was referring to mine. I think replies should be a little more specific.
