This is Shan/Tai Yuan, from northern Thailand or eastern Burma (or adjacent areas of Laos & Yunnan). I'd say it is fairly old based on the patina and fineness of the carving.

I think it's very beautiful.
Is the hilt bone or stag horn? It looks hollow?

Hilt could be ivory. A close-up photo down on statue's head might help.
