Not 100% sure of this brand, I've read that this same brand was applied to saxophones mfg. by Schenkelaars (Netherlands) as a private label brand. Have also seen this brand labeled as Italian made.

Not sure of the value, but have seen other examples of this brand sell for around $50-$100. From the photos, looks like in very good condition, perhaps on the higher end of the range. Your challenge will be the brand is unknown, and would probably make a good student level instrument.
