ANTIQUE FURNITURE RESTORATION DISCUSSION BOARD

scottish chest

At a recent auction there were three scottish chest-mahogany-bow front for sale--these were suppose to be made in the mid to late 1800's. The unusual thing about the three chests---the wooden drawer knobs were stained to match the chest, however on every chest all of the drawer knobs had black lines painted on them (approximately 1/8 up to 1/4 inch wide) giving the knobs a "tiger" like appearance. My question is: could these "tiger" lines on the knobs be orginal, if not how could I remove them without damaging the finish on the knobs? I purchased one of the chests and would like to keep it orginal. --I enjoy reading your site, it is full of some good info.
