in-roof gutters

I'm about to get the roof replaced on my 1894 Victorian. Due to the crown moulding on all the fascia, the gutters are actually placed into the shingles about three rows up. The roof including these gutters was replaced in 1996 by previous owners. I'm having trouble locating new gutters like this. What is the name of this type of gutter and who supplies them?
