For almost 50 years, Howard’s Restor-A-Finish has been a standard in the antique industry. Because this product preserves the original wood finish, it also helps preserve its authenticity and value, whereas stripping the finish may literally strip the piece of its value. Restor-A-Finish penetrates faded lacquer, shellac, and varnish finishes to bring back the original color and luster. It restores the depth of grain, going much deeper than temporary “scratch cover” products. Restor-A-Finish penetrates and permanently restores most wood finishes without removing any of the existing finish – this is why it is very popular for antiques. Restor-A-Finish maintains the original “patina” of an antique finish – so it maintains its character and value as an antique.
Feed-N-Wax is recommended as a follow-up to Restor-A-Finish to protect the newly restored finish.
Permanently revive and restore the original color and luster in one step, without removing any of the existing finish.

It’s recommended that you test Restor-A-Finish in an inconspicuous spot to make sure you like what it does and how it matches the finish.
