Hej Philippe,

it looks like a hybrid of Consul (Wilhelm Woellmer, Berlin, around 1903) and the Grotesk of Ferdinand Theinhardt, sold under the name of Akzidenz Grotesk (Berthold A. G., Berlin).

Hello Philippe,

It's very similar to Segan-Light.ttf found on Dafont

Interesting, JanekZ. Konsul looks like an exact match. What’s the source of your sample?

Assuming that Consul and Konsul are the same typeface with some alternate letters*, I’d say it’s a Jugendstil/Art Nouveau/Wiener Secession inspired typeface (also see the a, f and g of your sample). Which in turn would imply that it could not have appeared till the late 1890s or the early 1900s.

* the only picture I could find online, of «Halbfette Consul I | Klassische Form»:

Probably comes from Orgelbrand's TypeFondry or Jeżyński Bros. Konsul has cyrillic version.
