My Mom had a 1949 Chambers gas range made about the same as your Roper. When she
went into the nursing home I got to asking around and sold it for $1500.00 to a
dealer in Houston. Seems the retro look was in about then. I think the original
invoice, new, for the stove was less than $300.00 which was a month's pay back
then. good stoves last forever and one of these days I'm gonna get a good stove.
