Default slope or slant front desk lids support

Hi,
Unsure as to whether I am in the right pew or not but I will ask anyway:
I am refurbising a slope or slant front desk/secretary. The desk lid support hardware is missing parts and I am seeking suitable replacements. My preference is polished brass. Any help is appreciated,

r

Order up the leigh Valley hardware cat. fantastic selection.If anything, should give you plenty to choose from. I've delt with them on several occasions and have been very pleased with the quality of their assortment.

Lee Valley has excellent hardware and selection, but it's a bit pricey. However they do have some items that are hard to find anywhere else. Be sure to shop around for the best deal.

I have a photo of the original hardware supports I am trying to replace. Tried all the usual suspects Rockler, Van Dykes, Woodcraft, etc. even eBay and Amazon.com. But, there appears to be a very small pool of manufacturers they buy from because they all have the same products.

Hope someone out there can help me,

Richard

Have you considered taking them to a metal shop or foundry and have them reproduced? I did a Google search on hardware reproductions and got a long list of places you may want to check out.

I have the arms, the hardware (2 pieces, one on each side) are missing: screws and mounting "brackets". But, thanks for idea about re-plating!
