The finish probably is shellac. It can be celaned without removing with an alcohol soaked pade rubbed in small circles until you have removed the dirt and grime which has adheared to the finish. Chandg eth pad to a fresh face as it gets dirty and work on a small area at a time. Once the chair is cleaned to the point you want then let it dry for 3 day and lighly sand with 360 wet dry paper and apply a coat or two of 3lb cut shellac let dry polishwith 0000 steel wool and then wax if you wish.
