buy som brown toluene free Briwax.  wax all surfaces.  should take about 2 hours.  now you have restored it!!

dont worry about the ring on the top.

this is from 1900 and a very high styles end table or lamp table. or fouer table.

in shop price on this beauty about 650. minimum.  cleaned and waxed.
