The Vtg Stencil series of fonts from astype are based on real world stencils. Vtg Stencil Germany No. 101 is modeled after historic stencil plates from Bavaria.

These stencils are a unique find. The unevenness of the single plates suggest that they were not produced industrially. The design itself, a blackletter chancery, is a romantic reprise of a style that was common in German writing offices from the 14th to the 16th century. The flourishes stylistically quote the Baroque period. A talented mind, perhaps around 1890, has transformed the textura shapes into a modular stencil system.

Overall, this decorative blackletter doesn't look like a stencil design. Maybe it was originally used by a sign painter, and all the typical stencil bridges would have been painted over in the final work.

If you're looking for a decorative blackletter font with a unique touch and a romantic feel, you will love Germany No.101.
