Help me find a piece of molding for a Chicago apartment

So my house has a mixed bag of messed up and painted over molding, I'm looking to replace it with a stained wood molding in the same design. So far I haven't been able to find a matching piece and I would prefer not to have to have it milled. I was originally hoping to remove the existing pieces, strip and stain them but a lot of them are in too bad of shape. It's in 3 pieces and the top part in particular is what I'm having trouble finding.
Here is a not messed up painted piece still attached
Here is a piece I've removed already
This is in a 1930 chicago apartment that I own. The whole place is very poorly painted wood but I have a dream that it will be wood grain again some day. Haven't totally figured out how to deal with the door casings or this molding yet. Stripping has not worked well on anything so far, other than a door I took to get dipped. Finding this piece for sale would be a start. Total height is 7", this piece is about 2.5".
