      That is the bottom half of a double hung window. Not terribly old. I usually soak the hardware in CLR or spray it with WD-40 then spray a paper towel with WD and wrap it up for a day or so. Then take a battery operated rotation toothbrush to it. If it doesn't come clean use a mild abrasive with the toothbrush, like mother's mag polish, brasso or even a paste made of baking soda and water. If you have a variable speed dremel you can buff it with a buffing wheel on low speed. Don't use high speed because it will generate heat and give you black marks that are difficult to correct.

      Rust can be removed by soaking in vinegar. Sometimes, if you can see bubbles or waves in the glass, they can be worth some money from those restoring Civil War era homes.
