help finding mortise door lock to fit antique plates?

I recently picked up a set of antique door hardware on eBay. It didn't come with the mortise lock, and I have been having trouble finding anything that might fit the plates that were part of the set.

I was hoping one of you might be able to point me in the right direction of what I should be looking for. I have attached an image that shows the plates and a lot of their dimensions.

If it helps, I purchased the set from someone in Canada.

Please let me know if you know of anywhere I can get a mortise lock that might fit this set. I love how they look and really want to be able to use them.

No idea. Did you ask at the Old House Forum?

Here's s start: It is in the "Windsor" pattern, probably made by Reading. You'll need a lot of luck to find the lock it goes to, and a lot of skill to re-attach it.
