A interesting gunong from the same time frame wich has seen a lot of use. It seems that this gunong has had once a owner from the Visayas, the leather throat at the scabbard let me think like this. Guard from alternating horn and aluminium plates and the "false" ferrule from alternating horn, aluminium and ivory (?) or bone plates, beautiful grained wood pommel. Very broad engraved blade is laminated. 27,5 cm sheathed, blade a little bit over 16 cm.
