Sliding door handle

A quick learner says:
We need to replace the handle in the picture--not the latch. Can we use 88-001 if the spacing between the mounting holes is the same? Also, do you know what type of bolts/screws/pins were used for ours? We do not recognize the hardware and our home is very old. Thanks for the help.

I'm not sure if the 88-001 would work. I don't believe the hole centers in your handle shown are standard measurements. I'm wondering if you could remove that clear plastic handle piece from the brackets and install a wood dowel/rod in its place. You should be able to purchase a wood dowel/rod from your local hardware store to match.
