Many of these mission pieces were finished with asphaltum as a stain and then varnished over. Washing with lacquer thinner and denatured alcohol, mixed 50/50 will often remove the upper layers of finish and color withouth sanding the wood and destroying the patina. It also makes it much easier to build a new finish because the woood will be very smoth before you start.
