looking for antique bracket

Asking for a friend.
This is from an antique wine press that is being refurbished.
Where can he find a bracket like this?

Seems he'd have to check Ebay or Etsy, as both sell antiques. Maybe an antique mall, if there's one near them.
Otherwise, I guess an L bracket wouldn't work?

He was hoping to preserve the antique style of the press.
But thanks for the idea. I did check E-bay, but not Etsy.

Norm,
Print a match on your 3D printer. If that would not be strong enough by itself use a standard ell bracket for support and 3D print a "cover" to go over it to match the existing bracket.

John, I actually thought of that at one point.
But I think is going to look for a foundry that might be willing to do a greensand cast. It will be costly.
