You might want to try Poetica Ornaments, though it isn't exact...

Anybody still up for this particular motif/font hunt challenge?
I even contacted veer.com but nobody...NOBODY seems to be able to locate this motif! Isn't that bizzare? Seriously, whoever can locate this hard to find motif is the real Motif GURU, period! ,-)

why is it so much harder to locate an ornament vs a type font?

Because there's not much evidence to work with - basically you posted a shape and it's pretty hard to figure out an entire typeface based on just one shape and even more so when the shape isn't even a letter! Why not just recreate the shape by hand?

It looks like some of the ornaments from Bickham Script, but I didn't see this exact one. Another reason ornaments are so hard to ID is that they may not be shown in the font samples in font books, and some web sites don't show all embedded glyphs in a single Character Map.

The other problem is that there is not much way to know whether the particular ornament is hand-drawn or not. When there is only one of something shown, you have no way to know.

It reminds me of the ASType Ornaments, but I can't seem to find this exact glyph.

Not an exact match, but this link might help in case you settle for something similar (second item: Civilite Tails by Moye & Beatty, 1993).
