This spadroon model was carried by the leading Dutch Infantry General officers in the campaign during the Belgium revolution of 1831. It is a quite rare model and seldom found. (Please see the attached old drawing as a reference. It gives, in the Dutch language, more information about this model and the general officers who carried it during these 10 days of the campaign.)
According to the Dutch National War museum, this is a M 1815 Infantry Field & General officers spadroon. Used from 1815 till 1820 only.  It looks very close to the German IOD M 1819 spadroon, but the dimensions are much bigger and heavier. (see last picture for a comparison.) : A.) German IOD M 1819 spadroon. B.) Dutch Infantry officers spadroon M1820. C.) Dutch Infantry Field & General Officers Spadroon M 1815. 

Unique Dutch high ranked officers spadroon, proofed to be Dutch by the unique etching; A tiny little Arms of the Kingdom of the Netherlands with the rampant lion with only 4 arrow in its claw. This is the Arm of the Kingdom of 1802. (Error?) This crest was replaced in 1814 by a lion with many more arrows in its claw at the return of the Dutch king from England prior to the battle of Waterloo in 1815
