I have a very good sounding Martin Stencil made called a Horace sold by Landay Bros. New York. Landay was a chain of music stores that was very large in NYC until their bankruptcy in 1931. I originally thought the sax was made in the mid thirties, but it appears to be late 1920's sax.

Presto was a music trade press from 1900 to 1941 and has a lot of trade data, though it is bit piano centric.
