Resources for Finding Discontinued Ceramic Soapdish for Vintage 60's Bath

I have a friend who is refurbishing her downstairs bath in a home
that was custom-built in upstate Ohio in 1962. During the
refurbishing, the bathtub's wall-mounted ceramic soapdish was broken.

They are beside themselves trying to find a replacement for the item, which is a cocoa-colored ceramic soapdish with the words "American 541" molded on the back. "American" stands for the company "American Olean"; the company -- after being contacted -- told them the dish is no longer made and they have no resource for them.

Does anyone have resources they can leverage to find a replacement?
