Could be a commercial version, but looks like Storybook

The original typeface is an Art Nouveau one shown in the Petzendorfer book from Dover Books. The typeface name was "Pretorian" from the London firm of P. M. Shanks & Sons.

Intellecta Design has a font based on this called Pretoria Gross, which includes various ornamental treatments using the letters, as well as the plain black and outline versions of the typeface.

Another is called Pretorian DT by DTP Types. It has 4 versions.

FontBank had a version called "Vivian", and Serials (or whatever they are called now) had a family called "Pretoria".
