Doubt you will get it off the shelf in Walnut its either stain something up from Burbidge or Wither-Browne or get your carving chisels out.

You are unlikely to get those lengths and dimensions of egg and dart off the shelf.
It is generally an ovoid rather than a quadrant based on a circle because it is primarily intended to be viewed from below.
In wood it is usually made to order so that the eggs fill the available space fully, including mitred joints - the darts also have to be spaced - otherwise it will look odd.

You probably need to talk to a carver.
