I have a Cheney style number 3 floor model. Does anyone have any pictures of intact grille cloth or recommendations for reproduction cloth. Mine is very dirty and torn. It looks like it has leaves in the print. Thanks!

Without seeing the fabric, it's going to be tough. Most patterned cloths of that era aren't reproduced.

Is it a clean tear? Sometimes I've seen people have luck using fabric glue on the back side and adding a piece of neutral colored fabric to the back for support. Of course if there are holes and cat claw damage, this won't work.
