Wonderful example.
I love the Napoleonic era stuff. It is always extremely hard to find in original condition --- especially Tschako's.
Like so many others, this model appears to be a take-off of the French design.
I'll need to do some research on Dutch involvement in the Napoleonic Wars, but I believe that the Dutch sided with the English against Napoleon after the initial French occupation.

Congratulations! I look forward to more photos.

John :bravo: :bravo: :bravo:
