Sure looks like a standard-issue British "3-speed racer" brake lever to me; major challenge miht be finding one with reasonable chrome, I suspect. but, I could be wrong and such a lever still might be close enough.

Does anyone have any ideas about what kind it might be or where to find one?

Something similar would do as well, as long as I could run it up close to
