It is unlikely to be a font at all — this lettering is on a wooden door. The same style of ampersand appears as well, only squatter and with more line-weight variation in the thins. And there are other variations in the letters.

But that ‘c’ is something like the text just before it.

Charmingly peculiar.

I was trying to recreate that etcetera using fonts (see attachment). I do believe this style expired at the end of the 19th century or perhaps even earlier.
