Vintage range mavens, can you date this?

Looking for something totally unrelated, I ran across this quirky little Westinghouse range:

The listing says 1930s-40s, but I'm darned if I can figure out an approximate date. Magic Chef was doing gas ranges with chrome legs in the mid 30s, and Westinghouse was moving in the general direction of the superstructure on this one by 1936, but the styles were quite different:

1935 magic chef:

The streamlined style of the top one would make me think mid to late 40s, but by then the knobs would have been large and dark and easy to grab, no?

Anyone got a guess? It seems to confuse the sellers, too (stove/oven/desk!), and they're pretty up on old appliances:
