I've been searching the web for over an hour and cannot locate a workable link to download this "Drawer icons" set for my dock.
I only have this Download icon and would like to get the whole set.

Can anyone offer any assistance?

Problem solved, found the original download icon pack on a very old IDE hard drive from storage.
Thanks to those of you who offered assistance.
This zipfile seems to me would be a good addition to the Leopard software archive,
Can someone point me to who I should contact, or I could just post a dropbox link to the files.

Like I said in my original post...
"searching the web for over an hour and cannot locate a workable link"

Well then if you already searched all those links then I don't think you will find anything. The original's website "osx-e.com" is down so if it ever goes back up then that may be your only chance

Exactly why I posted on this forum where just maybe, someone might have this icon package and would be willing to share.

You did not post the original link, so I am guessing here.

Found an article on TUAW that links to a Japanese blog that's invitation only. Rest of the links are blown on that page.

Google Images gave me some options though. The following link LOOKS to me like what you show, but I don't know if that's what you meant. It's on Deviant Art and you can download it through the link. The artist gives credit to a Japanese site on GeoCities that is since down, so it leads me to believe this may either be one in the same (for what I found) or a variant thereof.

If you could directly link to what prompted you to search for this it'd be helpful.

Erik, thanks for trying.
The link you supplied leads to a whole lot of icons converted for Windows use, not what I need.
The original Drawer icon set came from a Japanese site way back when Leopard first arrived. The one I posted (Download Drawer) is the only one I seem to have left, hence why I'm trying to locate a source for the whole set.

Hmmm…ok.

Well, you know that you can open the .ico's in Preview, Select All, Copy and then Get Info on a Folder, select it's icon and Paste right?

Admittedly, you'd have to apply these manually, but you'd get what you want.

Yes - resurrecting this thread from the dead. But letting folks know. I've been using these dock icon "drawers" from Leopard up through Mojave. As a test I upgraded my secondary machine to Catalina (I stay a major release behind Apple's current OS on my primary machine). For whatever reason Catalina no longer recognized the drawers and most of my dock icons had a "sheet of paper" overlay on them. Had to go onto my Mojave machine and do a "get info" on the icons, then copy the icons from that window, then paste it into preview and save it as an icns file. Then, transfer the files to the Catalina machine and name it so it's the first item in my folders. So, the drawers are back in Catalina!
