I've been in music all my life, and I confess that I've never heard the term "treble saxophone"

I have been involved in the repair of wodwind most of my life and served in an army band for 7 and a half years including boys service. There are two saxophones that I have heard of that are "abnormal". The first was the " HIGH " sax which I believe to have been in C. The second of these was the TREBLE sax which I have seen and had a fundamental lowest note of G concert. There are examples of this which are generally regarded as children's saxophones. I have also heard of a sax in F but never seen one.
