Want ot identify the two typefaces; (A) Williams' Soap and (B) Barbers Favorite.
(B) Similar to Gothic Condensed No. 521, but I don't think it's the one.
Lithographed label, not typefaces.
WILLIAM'S SOAP is in a lettering style called "concave." Here are a couple of digital fonts in the concave style -- not including concave Tuscan, which has spiked outlines:
The style is also sometimes called arched Gothic. Here is a condensed version:
Arched Gothic Condensed :
You're welcome William.
If you can edit fonts you can make this by clipping spurs and rounding outlines on P & S etc. of several Concave Tuscans or Gothic Tuscans. Not a 5 minute job.
WILLIAMS' SOAP: don't have the answer but here some alternatives you may like to consider: Centennial Banker LHF, Number 154 and Engel BA
BARBERS FAVOURITE: still searching for good alternative... Stay tuned!
Could be edited. Radiant Antique:
Get rid of the ornamentation and it's as close as anything mentioned so far.
BARBERS FAVOURITE: as previously said, some I like as alternatives: Hamilton, Equal Sans, Eldon WF, Type No5
Thanks to you both!
You're welcome William. Have a smooth shave.
