Answer
Don,

I took your picture to several hardware supply companies in the Denver area.
There wasn't any of them; that could come up with any sort of replacement.

To me; is looks as those the break could be spot welded.
I am not sure of the material substance.

If they can't spot weld; I am sure they could duplicate your piece at a welding shop.

Best wishes; with solving your breakage.

Sincerely,

Expertise

We have been in the wood care business for almost 30 years (we are still learning) We do refurbishing and touch-up of furniture, paneling, antiques etc. The number one question that we receive; is what do I use on my furniture, to keep it looking moisturized, clean and get the depth perception back into the finish. I believe we can help on products to use and answer questions on why we don't use certain products that are available to us. I am sure that there are many questions on wood care that we can't answer; but, give us a try anyway. We find that many people use products for maintaining the wooden furniture, etc., and can't understand the reason it looks worse as they continue to use certain products. Most people use the products that their mothers and grandmothers used. Finishes on furniture have come a long way; from shellacs, waxes, varnishes etc. Give us an email and see if we can help with some of your questions and concerns.

Experience
