Mosley in his introduction to the Pouchée types describes a flat foot on the slab serif 'R’ as only found in French slab serifs. Jonathan Hoefler created a very similar internal shadow slab serif called Egiziano Filigree but the shadows aren’t as deep.
Thank you, Blythwood! Hoefler’s Egiziano Filigree was designed in 1989 for Rolling Stone magazine. A one-word sample is reproduced in Counterpunch – below is a photo from Estereográfica’s Portuguese edition. This face is wider, heavier, and without any bracketing – but yes, it’s definitely similar.
Vineta Ornament is another face in this ballpark. The all-caps style is part of the Vineta series deisgned by Ernst Völker for VGC in 1972.
Nice addition! What an amazingly apt typeface for advertising waffle irons.
