Links to some old dobro catalogs (the ones represented as sort of beige color are actually metal body models like yours) -

I had a similar Dobro Resonator back in circa 1977. As I recall, I bought it new for about $300 and it had the nickel-plated, bell-brass body with palm-tree engraving on the front and back. Judging from the linked Dobro catalog, it looks like it could have been a Model 33H. It was a pretty good guitar but it went when GAS struck!
