What a nice cuchillo de farolillos (lantern), corrado.
The jaula (cage) grip exactly like other examples of the 19th century, as the one in the catalogue you show and the one i post here, if you don't mind .
The blade in yours being more plain, and the date somehow crude, comparing to the ones usually decorated and with a hand engraved date. The velvet scabbard is also most similar.
