    Hi -

    I wonder if anyone could kindly help me in identifying the type of finishing in the attached photo's and identify a suitable remover ? I was previously under the impression that this might be old shellac or french polish so bought some cellulose thinners hoping to remove this. Whilst this has had some of the desired effect, the last remaining stains seem impossible to remove (see pics).

    If it helps, this was on a 1950's staircase after I removed a few layers of paint.

    Any advice would be appreciated

    Thank you
