Broken Stanchion Base - Options?

I removed a stanchion base and discovered that it's broken in two places. One repair remains intact but the other fell apart when I removed it. It looks like it was previously repaired with an epoxy or other adhesive. It's cast aluminum and I have the broken piece.

Needless to say J.J. Taylor is no longer in business. I actually contacted Jeremy Rogers (the original British builder who still makes some boats and parts) but the British stanchion bases don't match.

What are the best options for replacement?
-Send it to a shop to weld/repair
-Find someone to fabricate a new one
-Epoxy it again (J.B. weld)?
-Anything else?

Thanks in advance.
