Look for a woodturning club in your area or maybe someone here could reproduce and ship them.

You can do small turnings on a drill press.

When in Danger, When in Doubt…..
Run in Circles, Scream and Shout.

I have often found that on antique furniture the hardware is one off. Some I have never found again, so replacing it with something else is the only option.

I have had people try to turn a pull for me, but it never comes out exactly the same, even when they have the old piece in hand. The new one always ends up with some personal touch that doesn’t match.

Now days I just look for enough pieces to fit the whole unit, as long as it is close and cheaper than having them made.

If I have a genuine Chippendale or Stickley, I might go to the trouble of searching out original pieces or having a whole set made.

Agree with Dallas, if cannot find replacements cheaper & easier to replace all pulls at the same time.

don’t know if they would but two places I would check is restoration hardware .com or west end salvage .com. they may be able to point you in the right direction if they don’t have something.

You might try either of these places:

It’s worth a try, although I must admit that I’ve never seen any quite like the one you showed, so they may be custom.
