Italicized Serif font used in logo

Classification: 

I'm recreating a logo from a bad photocopy. Can anyone help me identify the font?

This one has elements typical of the sign painter's art, and I believe it was done by hand due to some differences in duplicate letters. If so it was done by a master of the art, clearly not an amateur.

Ah, not what I was hoping for but I appreciate your feedback! Another person thought the font might be based on ITC Benguiat although there are differences.
