Default Help finding font

The attached sample has been hand drawn, but I expect that it is based on a commercial font. Can anyone identify what the artist may have used as a base, and/or suggest other fonts that have the same general feel?

Thanks for your help,

Diane

Not sure about the fancy type, but the “and” is some flavor of Caslon.

Adobe's Viva has something in common with the "MOON" and "STAR" type in your sample, so it may have served as a sort of inspiration to the letterer. It's the closest face I can think of, but not terribly close.

That does look fairly similar; thanks!
