Default Italian or spanish navaja old knife ?

Hello everybody,

I would like your comments please about this folding knife,

I think it's an old piece ( maybe 19th century ?)
Is it more a spanish navaja or an italian model ? ( coltello romano )
Nice mecanism, seems made with hand made pieces,
it can be locked on three positions.

Thank's for your comments

It is Spanish, probably mid 19th century, but it would be good to have a detailed pic of the engraving on the blade.

Cheers
