Default Extra-LG Barong

Hello everybody,
I have been busy with life but recently I came across this Barong, Please tell me as much as you can, it is larger and longer than any others I have seen or have in my collection. It has an over all of about 30 inches long! I got this blade for $ owed to me, I am trying to figure out how old and where was it made. Blade is spring steel and ring tone to it and was hand forged. The sheath is wrapped with a flat wire, the sheath was decorated with what looks to be thin sheet aluminum or silver. I was guessing made early 1900s. Please share your thoughts!
