I think Patrick Barta make a similar replica.

Catalogue number: 138 and 150 on his website.

Hope it's a little help.

Barta;'s stuff there linked is similar, but not quite spot on.. There is an angularity in his inlay not present on the pictures of the original.. Granted, I'm *very* new to analyzing these things. But I'd say they're close matches definitely.
