Default where does this one comes from...?

Bought this dagger as:

Antique Turkish Ottoman Dagger Knife circa late 1800's
Handcrafted authentic knife, engraved blade, the handle is made of horn with brass rings between, and brass parts.
32.5cm full length
the dagger 31cm
the blade is 18cm and 3cm wide

I agree indeed it to be Ottoman but place it in the Balkan.
Looking at the motives on the scabbard it might even be Bosnian,
but against that: I never saw this motive on a blade .
Unfortunately no maker's mark...

And ofcourse I know not everthing and am an amateur compared to most of you..

Hence it could also be from more southern countries like Macedonia or Bulgaria...?

What do you think?
