Roper from Oceanside, California

The Roper variations just get more and more interesting. This looks like an early 40s except for the knobby panel, which shares some aspects of the late 30s models. But what’s the configuration: Stove on the right, broiler on the left and on the bottoms—what? I see 4 burner knobs. So why are there 2 folding tops? My head is spinning but I love it.

    Very cool looking stove. It looks like one of the salt/pepper shakers is there as well.
    It was worth the wait to see (well most of anyway) the pic.
