Help. Looking for font to go with this ...

I can not find a font to fit with this logo.
The font needs to be more classic not modern.
Thank you for suggestions and ideas.

What do you think ?

Can it be more classic ?

It should match exactly, or there should be sufficient contrast.

A close match: Beaufort Extended

Plenty of contrast: Craw Modern (Letterspaced.)
This would work well with the logo gold embossed.
("Modern" in this context means "Didone", not recent times.)

How about this great new sans serif release "Contax Pro".

#4, but I'd decrease the size of the logotype. And I might consider spacing it a bit.

Well yes.
I gave a couple of recommendations based on the layout shown originally, not the one subsequently shown -- which apart from type choice has an issue with not "squaring off" nicely.

I really like the Sans-Serif you've chose but I feel as if something is still a tad off. It's probably the size and position of the logotype. I feel there is not much of a rhythm between the two elements. Perhaps give the logotype some more personality by playing around with it in terms of position and letter spacing etc. Would you mind if I asked you what this logo is for, it's very interesting.

I am glad you asked. The logo is for a chandelier manufacturer - www.fdstil.com
They design and produce custom made chandeliers. The logo will be reproduced on some brass parts with engravoing and it must be simple.
