What is my sax?

I asked before, but got no answers so I thought I would try again. I recently received an old sax that I would like to find out more about its history. On the front is a knight and below it says Cavalier and Elkhart IND USA On the back it has: Patd Sept 15 1915 above 1158499 above A above 0153 above L. It is silver (plated I assume) and there is a thin bridge between the body of the sax and the bell and also a tristar Mercedes Benz type guard on lower C? There are pearls or shell on many of the keys. I would appreciate any help that you can give me regarding this sax.

    Well, If it says, PATD.SEPT.14.1915 on the first line. And it says 1153489 on the second line. With the A and the L, I'd say you've got a low pitch Conn Pan American Alto...
