I can get the same result also without Cairo:
    emacs-26.1 --xrm "Emacs.fontBackend: xft" -q -font 7x14

When I copy the font where fontconfig can see it:
    cp /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc/7x14.pcf.gz ~/.local/share/fonts/
    fc-cache -vf
I see this:
    fc-list | grep 7x14
=>  /home/arirop/.local/share/fonts/7x14.pcf.gz: Fixed:style=Regular

After that, using "-font Fixed" seems to work.
