This is a very nice sample of high quality craftsmanship, the serial number dates this C melody tenor around 1918/19, it is a low pitch (A=440hz), "New Wonder" model with rolled tone holes, front altissimo key, straight neck with micro-tuner mechanism Conditions are exceptional for the age, the gold plate is almost intact and the bell feature the extended hand engraving typical of gold plated saxophones, wonderful ! The saxophone and its original neck are in excellent shape, nice and straight, without dents or metal repairs, neck never pulled down or bentThere is some little, very tiny mark here and there but absolutely nothing major The keywork feels comfortable and it is in very good working order, all springs respond well and there are no frozen screws Brown pads with rivet are not new but have a good sealing, the saxophone plays with a very beautiful and warm voice The original case is a little worn outside but it is structurally in good shape, locks work well and the handle is secure The saxophone come with its original hard rubber mouthpiece in very good conditions with metal ligature and capThe name PHYLLIS WRIGHT (the original owner I assume) is engraved on the body (see pictures) in Gothic characters, very clean and good job!
