Source for original style front door knob and escutcheon

I've searched the Forums but don't find anything recent about replacements available that look like the original style front door knob and escutcheon hardware.

Searching Google I came across this page describing a source but it's a few years old:

http://www.marinhomestead.com/diy/how-to-install-original-eichler-front-...

I've emailed the address shown on that page for the guy who makes those escutcheons and am waiting to hear back.

Has anyone on this Forum used that guy, or do you have other suggestions?

My front door still has its original knob and escutcheon but the lock doesn't work (unrepairable according to two locksmiths) and they are in poor shape cosmetically. I use a deadbolt to lock the door.

Thanks,
