Default Help IDing a guitar

Hi all.

This is my first time on the forum so hoping someone out there might be able to help.

I picked up a classical/flamenco/spanish guitar recently from a charity shop for 5.

It looks hand made to me, or at least well made (from my limited knowledge) and whilst it's also well played it is quite nice to play and has a nice sound to it.
The back is very nicely quilted in terms of the wood and the binding and rosette inlay are all real inlay.
It has quite a lot of wear around the right (bottom) of the soundhole which makes me think it was used for playing flamenco tunes as the wear looks like nails have tapped away at the wood.

It has no label inside and I don't expect it will be easy to identify it, but I thought I would try.

Thanks so much for any help you can offer.

Thanks so much! Looks like that's the one!

I haven't seen an example online that has the next quilted back like this one however.
Although it's not in tip top condition I think I did alright for a fiver...

It's not often the strings cost more than the guitar!

It plays nicely but it might need some new or at least refurbished tuners.
The set up could do with adjusting too.
