I think the portrait is a generic Holy Roman (Germanic), Emperor. He has a mustache!

Possibly Leopold I (d1705) although just kept as a decorative motif. He was the last one sporting a mustache.

Spain used a lot of 1796 after 1808, either passed by the British or purchased by many patriotic corporations.

I do not see why it should be spurious. The script is a bit Runkel-like.
