Silvertone was the stencil name that was sold by Sears Roebuck during the first half of the 20th century. Usually the Silvertone saxophones were made by American horn makers like Buescher.

I have documented saxophones made by then German saxophone manufacturer Hammerschmidts , that carry the name Silvertone. Therefore it is not inconceivable that Sears Roebuck would have contracted with J. Keilwerth to produce some horns for them as well.

At this point I am taking an educated guess that the JK horns that carry the Silvertone name were in fact stencils for Sears Roebuck. Read my notes on the horn(s) in the gallery to see how I reached this conclusion.

At present my sample size is very small. In time I hope to gather more JK Silvertone images, and then maybe we will be able to determine something definitive. (Hits: 1789)
