Shellac is a good finish for pine, but it is not as strong as lacquer, so it depends partially on the use you are going to make of the piece. It's always a good idea to seal pine with a coat of sehllac before using lacquer as a top coat, that will seal any tendency to bleed which can occur in pine even when it is a 100 years old. Use Ornage shellac and it will add a nice color to the piece that also gives depth to the total finish.
