This is a good starting place -- https://www.antiquephono.org/sonora-book-r-j-wakeman/

Note, clicking on the bottom image will download or display (depending on your browser's settings) a comprehensive book in PDF format profiling the company and various Sonora models.

I believe your Sonora is the "Imperial," as seen on p.14 of Wakeman's book on Sonora. The "Imperial" is also listed and priced through various years on P.236.

The one you have is the version with the mahogany finish.
