Old English shop front – Serifs


Anyone know what the two serifs are??? Thanks very much


Without knowing the age of the sign (which I suspect is hand painted, not typeset), I can only give you similar digital typefaces.

For "ELITE," try Argus:

For "Confectioners" and "6," try Beaufort or Classic Roman:

"The" looks maddeningly familiar, but so far no luck matching....

I tried in the font identification website http://en.likefont.com and there are 2114 matched fonts in total, and the most similar font is AlbertaWide Regular.
