Thanks, I suspect it's designed around that time. It's slightly off in my mind for british tho. The lack of a backstrap on the grip was not usual but could have been a private purchase, the sturrup guard, while decorated brass is more 1796-ish or earlier, unperorated/slotted unlike the 1803 models, as is the full wire wrap. The blade side etch is also a bit odd. Looks well done. possibly a private purchase one made somewhere in the Raj.

If anyone has a photo of a similar one, feel free to post it and comment....
