Trying To ID Signature Of Egg Shaped Paperweight. ID = Henry Summa

Can anyone ID this signature? Measures 3 1/4" tall. There's a signature and then it looks like "MAR 79"?

Yes it is his.  Went and shot a photo of the signature on my Summa weight.

What that link fails to tell you is that he passed away not too long ago.
