The medallion doesn't have initials on it, it is just a flower, so I don't think it is a Buffet.

I’m guessing a student model (because of the ribs) japanese (because of the flower) sax made in the late 60s early 70s ( because if the keys and the low notes on the rhs) that’s been relacquered at least twice.

Thanks guys for trying to help.
After some research, I am thinking it is an old F.E. Olds. Possibly, an Olds Ambassador.

It is most likely Italian. An Afredo Santoni made horn for the company Ditta Giglio ( Little Lilly - hence the flower logo on the bell to body brace)

I was thinking the same. The horn in the original poster's photographs looks extremely similar to horns stencilled "Couesnon" after Couesnon stopped manufacturing saxophones.
