If it says Made in Holland is probably a Schenkelaars.

This looks like one which they made by assembling pieces bought probably from Dorfler en Jorka ( rather more then Keilwerth, see the LH pinky table while indeed the RH pink keys are of a design which was common to Keilwerth and Dorfler en Jorka ).

Schenkelaars did all sorts of things, even produced their own saxophones , but they also assembled from parts bought from Keilwerth, from Dorfler en Jorka, then sold saxophones which were made entirely from Keilwerth ( generally baritones but also tenors, I have had a few of both), from Orsi and last and definitely the worst from Arta Guban Timisoara-Romania ( these are terrible!).

The Beautiful Luxor Arta Guban have nothing to do with their last production when they sold horns to Schenkelaars.

Those were the last Ceasescu days and I doubt that anything that was made back then in Romania was made with any great care.

Anyway, this is a late arta guban, look at the shape of the RH pinky keys and the way they too resemble Keilwerth-Dorfler Jorka keys... ( if you ever see a Schekelaars with this bell to body brace... run in the opposite direction)
