Default A Civilian Cup Hilt

I've had this one for a while but just got around to taking pictures. It's very fast in the hand and feels closer to a small sword. All thoughts are welcome. Similar examples of the same style would be appreciated.

No marks unfortunately. I was thinking Italian but not sure. It measures about 112cm.

Well, it is not that long but also not too short, judging by what we see out there, as also by the few i have.
If i knew enough of these things, i would not excude the Spanish posssibility, until further and better assumptions. After all, Toledan smiths also made pierced cup hilts (taza calada). Also that 'rompe puntas' and that stylised 'guarda polvo' could fit into Spanish fashion.
