Default 10 Pin B10A socket

Dear members,
For an ongoing project I need a 10 pole socket + plug combination. Yesterday I received the plugs, with a B10A layout – see attachment for the plugs as well as this "special" socket. Problem now is to get the socket: I searched the internet, and the only reference I could find was an advertisement at Alibaba
10pin Audio Tube Socket - Buy Ceramic Tube Socket Tube Socket,Cmc Tube Socket,Tsop48 Socket Product on Alibaba.com
My impression is that the plug is new production, so I find it very weird that I can't find the corresponding socket. The place where I bought the plus doesn't have it; they don't even know why they have this plug in stock…
So does anyone have an idea where I could get this B10A socket, new or NOS?
Many thanks in advance!

Good luck! Can you switch to 11 pins? The 11-pin "octal" is common, used on relays...

Many thanks for your contributions!

To tell a bit more: Actually I am looking for supranoval sockets, apparently developed by Tesla (see attachment). As they are impossible to find, I found out that the B10A has the same layout: 10 pins in a 25mm circle, 36º apart. I found the B10A plug (soldering some receptacle pins on it I can make it work as supranoval socket - or I just put some mill max pin receptacles on the supranoval tube so it fits in the 2,4mm holes of the B10A)

Anyway, as there is a new plug available, I thought finding this socket would be easier than the suprenoval.

Meanwhile another worker at the place that sold me the plugs informed me that they use the socket in jukeboxes, and that matching sockets are on their way
