Default Help in identifying sword and etching

Another attic find at my in laws. Sad it's been subjected to the changes of temperature in an attic for 35 years. The leather on the scabbard is losing it's top grain when touched. I believe this is an Ottoman Sabre of some sort
but my knowledge in swords is nil. I'd greatly appreciate your help in identifying this sword and shed some light as to who the face is or why it's on the sword. The face etching is the same on both sides.
Thank you!
