Help identify this rare vintage find

I have acquired a rare vintage saxophone I believe I believe it's Alto. Just not 100% sure who the manufacturer is and what model it is. I have a patent date number of 115 34 89 and then the serial number is 33495. But this one has an actual artist name on it as you can see in the pics plus it says professional under the banner under the artist name. I have been up all night researching this and I can't find it anywhere it has to be a one-of-a-kind right. I believe it's a Conn Virtuoso Artist Model Alto Saxophone specifically.

    This is a stencil saxophone made by one of the big instrument makers in Elkhart probably in the 1920's-1930's. Its hard to tell from the photos which maker because we can't see any of the key work in your photos. If you can post a few more photos showing an overview of the sax from a few angles and a few photos of the keywork it would be easier to more precisely identify the maker of your instrument.
