    If you have the OS installer you can extract the files with Pacifist.

    First you need to tell which OS X version you have, they are probably in the same place but just to be sure.
    With pacifist you need to open OSInstall.mpkg, it will take some time, then press Command-F to find the files needed.
    Strangely I got an error and was unable to open them, ,might be a glitch on My System.

    In Leopard they are located in:
    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreUI.framework/Versions/A/Resources/ArtFile.bin
    /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreUI.framework/Versions/A/Resources/SArtFile.bin
    /System/Library/Frameworks/Carbon.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/HIToolbox.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Extras2.rsrc
    /System/Library/Frameworks/Carbon.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/HIToolbox.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Extras.rsrc

    BTW, most theme programs I used before made backups, I guess your didn't.

    I am on a limited Internet connection, if not I would have send you those files.

    Maybe some other users here.

    You could also try to install a temporary OS on a USB stick and copy them from there.
    Best way to do this is to log in as root, otherwise the file permissions are not set right.

    If you install then don't use Lion, you are on ML and should use the ML files.
    I think it is possible to install OS X ML on a USB stick from recovery.
