Serif display face with swirly features


Nobody at the bank knows what font their logo is, and it appears that not much thought went into the choice. Could not find a match on whatthefont.


Duplicate. Please check the answers on your previous post here:

As I said in the previous post, this likely predates digital fonts. It appears to have been cobbled together from a number of different sources, hand-drawn, then turned into an engraved plate or "cut" that could be used for printing. From the looks of your sample, at some point in the phototypesetting era photostats were made of a printed piece bearing the logo to create logo slicks. The quality is pretty low.

Most of the base lettering is a form of type known at the time as Detroit Serif (that's a style classification, not a typeface name). The closest digital equivalent I could find--and it's not that close--is Dulcinea:

The B is based on historical fonts like Campanile and Tendril, which I found in the Cincinnati Type Foundry Specimen Book (15th edition, 1882). There is a digital version of Campanile, but Victorian is a better match to your sample:

Unfortunately, if you want to recreate the existing logo digitally, you'll either have to assemble and adapt individual letters from the fonts listed above, or redraw and clean up the existing logo in Adobe Illustrator.

Sorry for the duplicate post. When I came back to check if there had been any replies, I couldn't find my previous post anywhere. Figured I must have forgotten to click "post," so I posted it again. Thank you for your response!
