Introduction, request info. on vintage Conn tenor saxophone

Hi, my name is Kathy Mikulski and I am new to Saxquest. I am trying to find info. regarding a tenor saxophone that has been in my family for over 80 years! It is a Conn, #M228366. It reads Patd. Dec. 8 1914. I believe it is solid brass with pearl keys. It has an ornate design on the bell as well. I appreciate any feedback.

    It dates to 1929. Its most likely a New Wonder Series II "Chu Berry" horn, or an early transitional model. Either way, a nice horn, congrats!
