Window Furniture

I'm having some (6) sash windows fitted, and I was wondering about sash fasteners and any other bits. I'd imagine they fit whatever's cheapest as standard - does anyone have any recommendations/advice? I'd like 'original Victorian' look.

Thanks, I think I prefer those - might as well get Fulton and Bray lockable - it'll add £40 to the cost but in the scheme of things . . .

Our house still has the original Victorian sash windows, and quite a lot of the original brass fittings, but some have been 'updated' over the years. The originals are invariable covered in 100+ years of paint, so the first task is finding the slots in the screws, then undoing them. That done, the old paint is removed by a combination of dishwasher and tumbler, then polished with wire wool, then brass polish.
Replacing missing furniture is pot luck. Bits quite often turn up in junk shops, 'antique' shops, even boot fairs. Always plenty on eBay, but usually at a price. Having said that, underneath any grotty looking piece there is usually a good, solid brass casting just waiting to be rejuvenated.

These people specialise in sash window fittings - haven't bought anything from them for a while but no problems with the bits to refurbish my sash windows around 10 years ago. https://www.mightonproducts.com/

Thanks - I've ordered some from them.
Impressed with the fitters - 2 blokes (I think) removed the old and installed the bay windows and a new frame, primed, in under 6 hours.
