I want to buy a really specific piece of vintage/restored furniture

There's a piece of furniture I want, and I'm having a difficult time searching for it online in Australia. Any advice to help me find it, search for it, name it, or discover an easy way to locate one would be helpful.

So, I want something pretty much exactly like this
as a dresser for my bedroom. In the US, it's called a "basket locker," but I'm having a difficult time finding Australia-based hits for the same when searching online.
Is it called something else in Australia? How do I find sellers of things like this?
Alternatively, I'm sure there are people who hunt down pieces of furniture for potential buyers all the time. Is that what an interior decorator does? How expensive would having that sort of help be? Would a boutique furniture store be a good place to ask after this sort of stuff instead?
I'm in Brisbane, Qld and want to find a relatively low-impact means of finding a (preferably) vintage/restored unit or two and pricing them out. I've never done this before, so what's my best plan of action?
