Deutsche Edel-Stärke packaging

The words “Stärke-Tante” may be handlettering based on Signal, though: 1) they’re knocked-out from the printed background, which is difficult to do with lead type; 2) some letters (a, e) appear twice under slightly different aspects.
Thanks, Stéphane. I would think so, yes. In many applications from this period, there were intermediate steps involved, for example in order to bring the text to a certain size, carrier material, or arrangement. Sometimes this was done mechanically, but often it was quicker to do it by hand. I have added the tag “lettering derived from typeface”.
