First time here? Maybe read the FAQ.

Identifying old Austrian Font from personal stationary

This was from my great grandmothers personal stationary from Vienna circa 1910.

I would be much appreciative if someone could identify this font as I would like to use the same style to do my own stationary.

Sorry, Ashleagh, but what you posted was hand lettered, not typeset.

Something like this would be engraved on copper or steel, locked up in a form with the other type (if the rest wasn't also engraved), inked, and printed. It reminds me of the signature seals used by Japanese printmakers.

Can you post more of the entire design?

Similar for the J, not so great for the S: Cruickshank

The lowercase s and j of Entwined Monograms by Harold's Fonts are also similar.
