Looks like a russian/soviet sax, but just guessing here based on the general look and patina, as well as the absence of serials or identifying engravings. Not a lot of information about them on the net.

I think I have seen white pads on those, and also the body to bell brace look familiar. You might find a small oval logo about the size of a coin somewhere, the simple design resembles a lyre or such. That's the St.Peterspurg/Leningrad factory.

I've seen that bell to body brace style on Kohlerts and Hohners, but can't find anything else that matches a German model. Honestly, the rest of the horn looks quite French.

It is almost certainly a Kohlert

Some parts are identical to model 1928 (not the bell keys but all the rest), as in many stencils parts from early models may have been mixed with later ones
