    Any decent joinery shop which manufacturers moulded items such as windows etc will be able to produce a spindle moulder cutter to suit your desired shape. You need to either make a very accurate template of the skirting (after removing all paint) or preferably take them a short length of the skirting so's they can get the shape perfect. You will have to pay for the cutter manufacture, then the actual skirting, so you will need to determine if it's financially viable. Might be cheaper to rip out the existing skirting and refit with whatever your local "standard" product.
