Does anyone know whether there is a source for reproduction Dupont Fabrikoid? The exterior of my Edison P-1 has pretty much lost all of its texture, and most of its color (besides having a slight tear on the lid). It would be nice if I could get it restored to a presentable appearance.

I've got both kinds of music--classical & rag-time.

Ratchford's leathercloth from England is almost identical. They used to make "Rexine" leathercloth years ago.
