Automatic Electric Type 95 Panel Phones

We have put the final touch on our rotary dial AE panel phone by adding a paper mat. It took a while finding the right type of paper. It is not exactly the same as the original but the texture is very close and I think it looks pretty good.The touch tone version has an original mat.The last photo shows both AE type 95 panel phones on display at our museum.
