This wood piece, there were 4, about 11 inches long.
1 was salvageable, the other 3 were missing,
this is from a Pathe' phonograph cabunet. Any way to try and duplicate this?

Yeah, you can route it. Use a series of different bits and depth/distance settings on a router table to approximate the contour, then blend smooth by hand. I have pin routed curved moldings and it works out well.

could probably do it on a table saw as well, and a hand plane, rasp, sand paper.

I don't know where it fits but you could possibly find a moulding (door trim, architrave etc) and ditch the existing one and make four new ones that would be close. A lot easier than making three copies at 11" long.

Depends if it is structural or just trim as well?

Of course that way loses some originality so making copies is the best. Unless good at woodwork and the use of a router I would get them made by a Pro.
