The decorative sign on the back of the blade shows that the sabre or at least the blade has been made in Solingen. So it should be a Bavarian or an Austrian officers sabre around 1750.

I don't think that this is a gun made for or in Germany or Austria. The barrel with this chracteristic backsight and the inforced muzzle is a typical turkish or osmanic one. Over that the decoration...
