1940s German product font (Frisch und Haupt Suppenpaste)

Recommended Posts

I am trying to identify these fonts taken from a packet of German condensed soup paste. Fonts were used between 1941 and 1945. The font was used by Frisch und Haupt of Vienna.

The usual font recognition sites have drawn a blank.

Can we see the complete label?

In that time, I would usually expect labels to be drawn, not typeset.

That helps!

Pretty sure the logo part at the top is a printing block and not typeset. 
Everything below that however seems to be letterpress printing. So, we might be able to find the font for “Suppen-Paste”.
