Any help identifying the font in this old photo would be awesome

This is a pic I took of an old photo of the inside of our cabin in the white mountains of NH. The original photo is circa 1905. Above the mantle was a plaque that read Tipi Mitawa which is American Indian and means My House (Teepee). The plaque was stolen about 20 years ago and I'd like to have one made except I can't identify the font. See how the M looks like a Q? Any help would be so appreciated.

The two "a" letters appear to be different. Hand lettered.

Probably True. Is it modeled after a known font? I couldn't find one.
