I do not know much about Ottoman forms. However I can show my thinking on this example. The sword in this attachment was sold a auction 2007. Sold as SEA in the Dutch style. Note the grip, put a Chinese style guard on and you have a similar form. As or the scabbard end, bird motifs, forms and designs are not uncommon on many SE weapons? The floral decoration also have a SEA look?
