Thanks,

More information.
You want to remove the cloth off the baffle in one piece?
Or you want to pop the baffle out of the set ?

Vintage Pete - initially at least, remove baffle out of the set.

The early Krieslers had the screws to the baffle board on the inside of the cabinet,but then they changed it and started using tiny shoe type nails underneath the metal strips on the front of the TV's and their Radiograms and the baffle pulled out from the front .
My 62 Kriesler TV has the screws inside the cabinet and are easy to see and remove, so does my 11 77. Which is 1960.
But my 11 94 has the nails hidden from the front and so do the later TV's So have a look for tiny nails under the metal trims etc etc.
You can wash grill cloth if it comes off , woolwash is a good start and put it back on damp. If woolwash does not clean it there are other things ,but woolwash is a safe starting point if it's really necessary to be cleaned at all
Cloth is often risky and finding something that looks right can be very difficult
Pete
Ps have a good look on the inside too for screws like my 63 computermatic has 1962 model
