No, to my knowledge, this alphabet has never been made into a proper typeface, neither in metal nor in digital form. Kronen-Mediäval halbfett (Ludwig & Mayer, 1926) is a metal typeface that comes close in some details like ‘A’ and ‘E’. Unlike the less similar Windsor, it is not available in digital form, though. Peter Behrens’ Behrens-Antiqua (Klingspor, 1907) shares a few skeletal traits, too, but is different in the clothing. My recommendation is to take a look at Henriette. In its bolder weights, this cutie has a similar chubby feel.
By the way: After more than a century, the iconic logo by Peter Behrens has recently been replaced.
Thanks a lot for this extensive reply
