Need help finding hardware.

So I picked up a cedar chest to redo. It has hardware on it that is almost identical (doesnt have keys anymore) to the picture I have provided. I want to replace the hardware with something similar, but that has a nice skeleton key to it. Ideally, the keyhole would be flush with the outside of the chest.

I am having a hard time wording my searchs in google to give me what I want. I am really unfamiliar with this type of hardware.

Also, the chest is covered with a thin veneer, whats the easiest way to remove it?

I think the first one might be my best option, if only that keyhole stuck out a little bit. I will have to see what I can dig up based on that.

Thank you both for the help.

What I did when I had a antique repair shop is just take the lock to a locksmith. The one I went to had several jailer rings of old keys. He would go through the ring until he found one that worked and then copied it.
