Yes, I agree. Trully a very nice piece you have. I vote for Morocco.
I would suggest that it is maybe a composite piece. I mean that the crossguard was not initially made for that precise sword. I can't immagine the original master would put toghether koftgari (or goldplating whatever) and enammel techique. Nevertheless very nice piece.
Is the pommel cap also enammeled? Can you post a photo?
I also think that the blade is not european.
The hilt does look like rhino to me. Try to do a close up shot with flash.
