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.
