I came across this box and want to build a similar one. The box is about 6-7 inches tall. How can I duplicate the profile on the sides?

“Hollow and round” hand planes. Make one long piece with that profile, then cut your miters to get the size you need.Give me a moment I will do a sketch of which cuts first.
OR OPTION 2 using table saw and multiple passes. Lowering and raising blade as needed.If your not familair with table saw this is NOT recommended, as you have to remove blade guard. Just like cutting dadoes)

I’m not a hand plane guy. If I had to do this one, I’d be doing it on the TS. Angled across the blade for the top profile, then cut in on the bottom and hand shape.

Use your table saw to make the cove and round over router bits and block plane to complete it. The very bottom is a separate piece .

Take a piece of stock long enough for all four sides plus some extra for your saw kerfs at your miter cuts for the corners. Cut the concave profile on the table saw. use guides at an angle to the blade to guide your work piece and take multable cuts raising the blade slightly after each pass. After you have the concave profile cut. use a hand plane and sander to create the round over for the lower half. The bottom of the box will give you the bottom trim. When you cut the miters make sure that adjacent cuts make matching miters on the three corners that you can.
