You can rule out the 12m. Their high F was a curved lever, not a rocking key. Plus the bis Bb is not offset. And the bell keys.
Probably not a Buescher either, since you can see the fork F# key in the second picture.

Re: Can you help to identify this baritone?

yes, I think it is a Rampone & Cazzani or an Alfonso Rampone baritone (they have a very revealing and peculiar bell to body brace)

Any markings on the bell or near the thumb hook?

Re: Can you help to identify this baritone?

not easy, picture number two you see it (very faint) between the rods.

If it wasn't this very distinctive shape I couldn't have identified it

Another element are the rectangular D Eb F palm keys very similar to Grassi saxophone but , I am sure also so on Rampone early baritones

:faceinpalm: how did I not notice the bell keys were on the wrong side....guess that's what I get for looking at SOTW on my phone!

Now on my computer I can take a better look at the pictures. It looks like the bell key guards may be linked by a single crossbar. Reminds me of this Orsi "Metro" bass sax
