Someone may have put shellac over the original finish. To test for shellac try some alcohol on a rag and wipe a small area.

If that removes the finish just proceed with more alcohol. Some 0000 steel wool will be useful to help remove the sticky mess.

If you decide to strip and refinish do not sand the wood near the receiver as it will alter the wood to metal fit.

If it is not shellac then try acetone/nail polish remover and see if that works.

If the bad finish comes off just steel wool and oil to finish unless you want some shine then use BLO.
