Looking to identify the type - or find a close match

Can anyone recommend a font that will resemble the uploaded graphic, which was taken from a 1920s illustration done for Van Houton chocolate? Thanks!

Stencil font


This is the first time I have ever posted on this site.

I am looking for a stencil font for a project and was wondering what your thoughts are on the best, the newest or most underused stencil face out there. I am leaving my options open for serif or sans.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Somehow i got this posted in the solved section. How clever of me.

Well... I know i know this type... but you know ;-) ? .... - you can browse the pics clicking "next image"... yeah, it's right!

Thanks 'philes
