Locating a matrice

I need to find the below pictured ornament of a chair that was revived by Typefounders of Phoenix, and also offered by LA Type before they closed. Does anyone know where the matrice might be, or have the ornament and would be willing to part with it?

Thanks,
Paul

I believe most of the Charles Broad/Typefounders of Phoenix matrices are now with Sky Shipley/Skyline Type Co. It would probably be most productive to ask him, though you may have to buy a few sorts to get what you need.

This was offered in the 1950s by ATF as “Typecast Antiques.” I have this chair, 48 pt, prob. from ATF. Part of the top edge is smashed, but it is mostly good. It’s yours if you haven’t found a more perfect one. Let me know.
