Moorish [right] was designed, cut and patented by German immigrants Julius Schmohl and Ernst Lauschke, who assigned the rights to Barnhart Brothers & Spindler [USPTO D20778, April–May 1891].
Commercial specimens consistently showed Moorish Open [above left] on the same page or in a spread. As advertised, this handsome stylized latin was meant for multi-color effects!
Full Character Set. Caps only, numerals and punctuation
Patent. USPTO scan, monochrome tiff @300 dpi
Commercial. BBS catalogs 1893-1894, 1896
