We could really use Jens here, as there are few people who know tulwars as he does...but I would say this is indeed an authentic tulwar hilt of 19th century probably earlier and could be latter 18th. It does seem to be of wootz, and the koftgari is something I personally would not consider of the modern Rajasthan wares.
