Here’s a sleek Roper stove that came with the house one of our readers bought. I find this model quite intriguing because it’s got the early 40s knobs and handles that mine has, as well as the late 30s marbled burner surround that a friend’s model has (I still have to post hers, but that type of top is here). And the legs are somewhere in between.
You can’t quite see the marbling above; it’s a little more visible on the edge below.
The baking chart says 1938 …
But the broiling chart says 1940! I keep wondering what’s more likely—that the Roper plant would use old chart doors in newer models or that the plant would have doors for years in the future and use those in older models.
If you live near this stove and would like to give it a new home, give a holler.
