Excellent character in the lettering on this sign, presumably Austria, and after circa 1910. Don't know of a digital match, or a pre-digital for that matter.
The style shows a mixture of influences, including Art Nouveau and the Arts & Crafts movement. Some of the fonts in this link might be of interest.

You're welcome Alfred. I should have made a specific mention of Jugendstil, which is after all the leading version of the influences of Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts in Austria. So add to your list David Kerkhoff's new font Himmelblau http://www.linotype.com/1247150/Himmelblau-family.html Also designs from Eckmann & Behrens are worth a look.
Don
