My mother (93 years old) has a very old (>100 years) drop front dest with extensive inlay work on the drop front and drawers. To the best of my knowledge this piece has never been refinished and has darkened to the point where the inlay is barely visible. Also, the outside of the desk is totally covered with small balls in the finish causing a rough (alligator?) finish. Help! What can I do to restore this piece without risking permanent damage? Thanks for any help you can give.
