The case lay-out looks like the case that is shown with some Marerne saxes without the velvet. I can't find any pictures with offset keys. It must be very early.

The bellkeys are left-side, so if it's a Malerne it's a 50's one or earlier. It COULD be, or perhaps also an Italian. As Milandro said, not enough visual info to go on.

No pics of pinky table, neck, bellbrace, octave mech, any of that stuff.

It could be anything, really....

Only Q which would help, if you can get seller to answer (besides "can you post a few more pics ?") is:

1) what's the serial # and is it stamped vertically or horizontally ? If vertically, leans towards Malerne (although a few had horizontal stamps, too)
