50's vintage water heater switch

Removed this lovely art deco switch and would love to restore or replace it. Pic is after mutiple applications of naval jelly, which has removed about half the rust but seems to have reached its limit. Anybody know where I can find a replacement or have suggestions for further rust removal/restoration? Worst case I will just reinstall as is. It looks a lot better than before...

Make it yourself. Buy a plate, blank or something you can work with. It should be easy and I agree...thats a neat looking switch.

That is certainly an option but I would lose the cool grooves and the "Water Heater" script from the original. Does your FC have the same switch?
