ANTIQUE FURNITURE RESTORATION DISCUSSION BOARD

Marshall Field Roll Top Desk

My husband and I just purchased a Marshall Field roll top desk. We believe it's about 50+ years old. The company that made the desk was The Clemetsen Company in Chicago. Does anyone know how we can get information about this desk? We would like to refinish it, but not sure what type of finish remover to use. We need to clean it up as there is some wax build up, dirt and dust from over the years. It's not bad, just shows a lot of wear. The desk is in real good shape, so it's just a matter of stripping existing finish, sanding and refinishing. The problem is, we don't know where to start. WE need help. Can someone point us in the right direction. Also, does anyone know where we can go to get replacement parts, etc.

Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Marilyn Sato, Mission Viejo, California
