On SF Bay Area CL.

 

The oven looks beautiful and the sink is certainly a curiosity.

Is that lower oven a warming oven? It looks smaller thant the upper.

I'm going to guess it's a warmer or storage.  There appears to be only one temperature control on the panel. 

 

I don't really get it.  If I were going to sacrifice that much cabinet space, I'd only do it for a second oven, not an expensive drawer.

It's a dual oven, (missing a knob). The 4 red lights behind the oven thermostats are pilot lights for both "bake" and "broil", so that means each oven has a bake and a broil.

I have a similar one from 1963 (one or two years newer).

The lower oven is a "Pull-N-Clean" and it's much smaller than the upper oven, both have "drop-leaf doors".

Missing knob and cracked glass. Don Draper had one hell of a party. The master and companion ovens are the same size as in the 40" ranges.

That's right Tom!

I didn't think about that before yesterday and I had just one shelf in my 1959 40" range. The left ovens in 40" ranges is the same size as the lower oven and the right oven is the same size as the upper oven. Yesterday, I took a shelf from this wall oven to see if it fits in my 1959 range and it does. So now, both have a missing shelf but at least, I have one shelf in each oven until I could find two replacement shelves!

Here's a similar but newer (and self-cleaning) oven for sale on eBay with it's matching cooktop. Local pickup only but if it works, it seems like a better deal without the cracked glass panel. It's missing a knob (to set the clock).
