In Response To: Stain and methods (Rick)

More than likely the base stain is an aniline dye. It is difficult if not impossible to remove. Mixed wood furniture often had this as a base color then was glaxed and or toned to even the color among the various woods. Many times these old finishes have darkened even further through the acumulation of dirt and grime and sometimes from the addition of coats of dark varnish to "freshen" the finish.
