Tuscan Ornate

In my attempt to hand carve some fancy numbers, I've been informed that the Ringmaster font I used is a revival of a 1830-50s font called Tuscan Ornate or Bracelet Victorian.




It has been re-digitized under the name Main Strike and also as a dirty digital under the name Romantiques.

Turns out the font was available in metal in 18 and 24 pt. sizes as late as the 1970s. I just may have to pick some up. Skyline Type Foundry has the mats to cast this font, (UPDATE 12/2015) Skyline has once again cast the Tuscan  Ornate mats. Go order yours today.
