Trim around bevel glass in front door needs replaced

Our 100 year old front door needs to have the glass replaced plus the interior portion of the wood trim around the glass. Is this possible and if so is there a company I can contact. The glass we have access to, so it is just the trim we are interested in.

A photo sure would be helpful. If you have trim that holds the glass in place, it should be removable, however 100 year old wood could be easy to split in the process. Is there a company you can contact? I am sure there is.

You are looking for "glass bead", which was made in 3 standard shapes, several sizes of each shape, and of course countless custom shapes and sizes. There are still a few profiles of it available at "real" lumber yards, but if you need something else, or a hardwood, it will have to be custom made.
