Any idea where this is from & when?
...so far looks like this ID project is a non starter.
Shame, I like the design. Anyone have a suggestion?
Laura Worthington's Number Five Smooth , manually slanted, would be quite close - except the C. There's an alternate b without the connector - like yours. That C may be a modification or borrowed from some sport script.
Good digging Mike! If one wanted to make something like the sample this would work as a starting point. The letter-forms, weight, and contrast are definitely in the ballpark. About another five degrees of slope and some editing of details, and Number Five is pretty close. In any case I appreciate Laura Worthington as one of our more accomplished script font makers.
Didn't get any further info from the ID requestor, so we really have very little to go on to determine if this is a script as such, or a custom word .
I am still interested in this project because the letters suggest something that would be [or is] an engaging script.
This is isolated from a branded logo (current), it's the Caribbean brand by Roundtree & Yorke.
Thanks for the source info. I did some checking on-line, and observed that this is perhaps the new version of Roundtree & Yorke's _Caribbean_ trademark. At least it's shown on labels of Roundtree & Yorke's _Caribbean_ items now being sold by major retailers. I was not able to find information on the date of trademark registration, but I did find labels on what may have been earlier stock of Roundtree & Yorke's _Caribbean_ label with the word _Caribbean_ in a Roman text.
On balance, I'm going to guess that Roundtree & Yorke's _Caribbean_ trademark as shown in the image, is the fairly recent work of a designer who may or may not have adapted Laura Worthington's Number Five Smooth, published in February 2013 or earlier.
Of course, the designer might have adapted another baseball style script.
