Poly is definitely not the way to go. It is almost impossible to repair or recoat. The table would mot likely been shellaced originally. Replacing the shellac with Lacquer is a viable alternatiive which will give you better protection than shellac, but still be a finish that can be repaired or recoated if it should be damaged. If you take reasonable care of either one and do not allow spills to stand on the table they would give you years of good service.
