Rick, Yep, a picture would be best but if you can't send one, try logging on to VanDykes.com, or Woodcraft.com. Van Dykes is more likely to have what you need though. Failing that you may have to have the molding custom made. I'm sure Norm Abrams can do it for you but he may be kinda busy, so look for a cabinet shop in you area.

I don't know how old the chest is but in my experience, some really old molding were not machine made. Often before the era of machine shapers, they made moldings by hand with a molding plane. You may have to find someone with a Stanley #57 plane. That of course is if you want to be really authentic. Most cabinet shops will have a shaper or router that can make the molding.
