This saxophone appears top be a Kohlert Stencil, or at the very least have many of the Kohlert characteristics (while having some differences, mostly aesthetic such as the square palm keys and Eb-C (these last one are a reminder of much later Weltklang but I tend to think that other things are preponderant here) on accounts of several characteristics ( bell to body brace, this type was used in some earlier Kohlert-Amati later on there were different ones, but the so typical feature is the neck brace replicating the “ man in de moon” ( also used by Buescher but different)+ microtuner very typical of Kohlert). Remember that stencils were often a combination of older and newer features .

Also the key guards seem similar to the Kohlert model ’57. In my opinion it is a concoction of Kohlert elements , previously used in many models of different ages.

The original part is the palm Keys.


here see example on alto of the bell to body brace as it was used by Kohlert (identical to OP horn)

this is the “ Man in the moon” neck brace, slightly different from Buescher, and the contemporary presence of a microtuner on a tenor screams Kohlert (there also examples without microtuner)

breveté means patented , there may be a serial number under some keys but knowing it or not won’t be fundamental to know anything , the left hand plateau resembles the one from Akustik which later was incorporated in Weltklang.

The Saxophone, whoever made IT, is Bohemian or German, worth whatever one wants to pay for it
