Have you tried ~/Library/Application Support/Textures/Fonts?

Other than that, I think something else changed on Sierra (and possibly El Capitan already, I'm not sure): when using fonts in Classic format (a screen font suitcase and LWFN printer font files), it seems the screen font suitcase needs to have the .suit extension to be recognized as such by the OS.

I don't remember where or how I found this trick, but I have had to use it for the MathTime, Euro and European Modern fonts, for example.
