Ornate Capitals

I’ve searched high and low for the name of this font, or for the entire alphabet. I’ve only been able to find a few random letters here and there. Does anyone know what this font is called?

I seriously doubt if this was ever part of a cast font. My guess is that it could have possibly been offered as an electrotype initial which were generally ordered individually as needed. You’ll have to search the late nineteenth century foundry and electrotyper’s catalogs.

Its an Aridi font, Tuscani (carnival with vines). I have the alphabet in Vector format.
