The "Antiques Road Show" mavens, the Keno Brothers, would point out, the original finish is sacrosanct and should not be redone. Phooey. If I owned that set, I would have the wood redone to a fare-thee-well, screw the resale price.

I don't think these pieces are old enough to qualify their surfaces as "time-honored patina." Strip away---no harm done.

One hates to think of what the new owners deemed an improvement over the original furnishings...
