Can someone ID this font?

I can't figure out the font used for "The Kanes" in this image. So familiar, yet still elusive.

This looks hand-drawn to me. Either that or some heavy manipulation of an existing font. Looks sort of reminiscent of Bookman.

Sort of Rennie Mackintosh-ish, but not quite.

It's bit like Showtime font, but again, different.

Desdemona, as rocketman suggested, looks pretty similar (and is probably what you're thinking of when you say it looks familiar).

This style of font can be called art deco -- using that as a search keyword may help you find a more exact match if you need one.

It's hard to tell from the small graphic, but it also looks like it could be derived from the Eaglefeather family.

Oh, duhhh, my apologies...reading comprehension failure on my part. I was referring to the red text in my comment above. As others have said, this is definitely an art deco style font of which there are many.
