ANTIQUE FURNITURE RESTORATION DISCUSSION BOARD

globe wernicke bookcase

I recently purchased a set of globe wernicke oak stacking bookcases. The finish appears to be orginally--it has some paint drippings on the sides, the topcoat is starved looking and in some areas the finish is rough with small bubbles. I did the denatured alchocal test on one of the corners and it quickly removed the finish, so I think it is shellac. I use a lot of bri-wax and their recommendation is to use 0000 steel wool and bri-wax to remove the top layer of the finish. What is the best way to revive this old finish? thanks.
