Lifted from pic in today's business news report that Hudson's Bay may buy Saks.
So I wonder what fonts or fonts have the comb over ampersand shown on the Saks & Company street level lettering?
I'm looking for an ampersand that closely resembles the one from Brioche. I need to be able to use it via @font-face or adding it into a custom icon font. Anyone with recommendations much appreciated!
Help me identify where this ampersand is from. Thank you
Do you find this ampersand shocking or OK?

thanks a lot (again)
In case you hadn't heard about it, I thought I'd give a mention to Ampersand, a one-day conference specifically focussing on web typography.
It will be held in the famous Brighton Dome Corn Exchange, in the seaside town of Brighton, UK on Friday 17th June 2011.
Ampersand is an affordable one-day event for knowledgable web designers & type enthusiasts. The idea is to represent the overlapping worlds of type design, web design and software, and the event should be a fun day of nitty gritty details from experts in font design & development, typesetting & font usage, browser implementations, and with glimpses of a bright typographic future.
The line up will be:
* Vincent Connare
* Jon Tan (web designer & cofounder of Fontdeck)
* Jonathan Hoefler
* David Berlow

I'm looking for fonts with the ampersand rendered ornamentally as the word "and." I've seen this a lot in more retro, poster-style projects, and I'm not sure if this is the font itself, or the alteration/rotation/etc. of a regular font. I am looking for more vintage, poster-type fonts.
Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know the source of this ampersand? It shows up on google images, as the search for 'lubalin ampersand'. If it's custom - where did it originally appear?
Or if its a font, what is it?
