Leaking sink faucet: identifying manufacturer

I have a single handle sink faucet that seems to be leaking at the handle.
Would anyone have an idea of the manufacturer based upon the pictures attached?
Thanks for your help.

The handle looks a lot like a Delta. I'd remove the handle and check the guts. if it is a Delta the internals should give it away and are readily available.

Thanks for your reply - I had thought so too and had called Delta and showed them these pictures. A couple of people at Delta looked at it and concluded it wasn’t one of their faucets.
I will see if I can remove the handle to see if that helps with identifying the manufacturers.

Looks like a Moen to me.
The repair kit will come with a new ball, 2 tapered springs, and two cupped washers.
Any hardware store will have one in stock there a very common faucet.
I use a dental pick to pull out the old washers and the eraser end of a pencil to reseat the new ones.

That also sounds like a Delta. I really thought the handle looked like a Delta till I found some pictures of Moen faucets that nearly all look like Deltas. My Moen experience is all about cartridge faucets.
