Tatyana, I agree with your initial assessment. This is European hunting sword, I'd say German (based on the pattern) or French (based on handle design). Certainly at least 19thC. The blade is of Damascus mechanical pattern of course and resembles yataghan shape but is not of Turkish or Ottoman production.
