I recently found at our town's "municiple waste and recycling transfer station" (remember when we called it "the dump"?) a pair of Vogue (they have the tags on them)rattan chairs in very good condition. I've washed them down with Murphy's Oil Soap and warm water. What remains of the finish is a dark patina like appearance with other areas missing the finish alltogether. What did Vogue use for a finish..varnish, laquer, poly, etc? I'd like to restore them to a more consistant finish if I can without going nuts with them. Luckily I've been able to find exact fitting cushions in a bark cloth very reasonably priced if anyone is interested.
Any help would be apreciated.
