make your acquaintance <vs> nice to meet you

I guess the most popular way to introduce yourself is to say "Nice to meet you."

Do you ever say "make your acquaintance?"

If so, when do you use the phrase, in business, or private??

Ex. I am delighted to make your acquaintance.

Thank you!

    I'd expect to see this wording in literature, for example, in texts by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle or Jane Austen.
