Crane, Fine Paper

Can anyone identify this script face that Crane Paper uses for their name?

It isn't as elegant as Sloop, nor as basic as Shelley or Kuenstler. Any help would be much appreciated.

Crane & Company have been around a long, long time (they're just up the road from me). I can't recall how long they've been using this copperplate identity, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's a custom piece, perhaps even originally done in actual copperplate engraving (especially since I think that was their stock in trade at one point).

I highly doubt you'll find an exact digital match.
