Yes, Turkish ribbon for sure.

The blade appears to have seen some real use.

The hilt seems to be horn. You should examine it with a 5-10 magnifying glass and maybe will discover it is rhino horn. From what I see in the photos I believe it is quite likely.

19th century Turkey would be my guess.

Nice piece!
