Notes:

This letter “K” was used as a drop capital (drop cap, decorative initial) in a book printed in Germany in the 1880s; it could be much older, of course.

The drop cap has swirly flourishes.

You can also see the original page from which this letter was taken, and the wild flower border surrounding the page.
