Roper from Newton, Illinois

Catching up on eBay offerings, this one didn’t find a new home. I’m intrigued by it. Although it’s a Dri-Gas model and the burner grates are distinctly different from mine, parts of it look just like mine—including the legs and 3 handles I could use! Eeeeep. Amongst my old stove friends, it seems the temptation is high to buy a spare stove or two (or three) just for the spare handles.

Look at the bracket above—don’t you think there was something on there besides shakers?

    I have a Roper that is almost identical to this model. do you know the year of this stove or how to determine the year it was produced? Also, I need a oven door liner, if you have any info on Roper parts, I would appreciate it very much.
    Thank you

    Hi Anthony. It looks to be early 1940s. You could check the date on the baking chart inside the oven door (though that is not decisive—it seems Roper used the same copyright date for many years). Also, you could look under the burner grates, at the back, to check for a model number. What city are you near? I’m sorry that I don’t know what you mean by an oven door liner. The models I have seen don’t have anything of that sort. Can you send pics?

    I came across your site while searching for a replacement handle for a Roper stove that my mom owns. The handles are exactly the same as the stove pictured above. Any chance you have to sell?
    Thanks for looking into it!

    That should read, “Any chance you have one (as in one of the handles) to sell?” – Thanks!
