In search of a possible salvage source for operator handle and latch for steel sash windows manufactured in England around 1920. I need several - exact number unknown at this time. The top of the fixed part of the steel frame has "Made in England" stamped in the center of the top rail. There is also a small brass plate where the latch of the sash engages the frame. On this small plate is possibly the name of the company, but due to usage the lettering is too faint to read. Photos of handle attached.

I didn't find the diamond with the "H" after removing some of the accumulated grime. It did reveal an embossed "HOPE PATENT" on the side of the toothed latch feature. Thanks for you help.
