While digging up the past about Bay Ridge just outside Annapolis, MD, I have come across some old broken hotel china made by Knowles, Taylor and Knowles (KT&K) from 1885 - 1904 time frame. What I am looking for the is name of the font, a complete character map, and if it is available?
Considering the date it could very well be just done by a calligrapher. Hint: Post your request at the Type ID-Board from Typophile.com. There are many helpsome people who are 1) interested in old type and 2) owner of the most obscure old fontbooks.
Thank you for the hint and I will do it now.
I am trying to do my research via the internet from home as I try to match the broken china I have collected over the years together.
Unfortunately I do not have time to go to the Pottery Museum in East Liverpool, Ohio where some of the remaining KT&K records are located. I was there in the seventies and have communicated with them this year. The museum is understaffed, and their records have only been partially cataloged.
