The original finish is a type of shellac so you may try that to see if it does what you want.

Either one should carry shellac. It's avaviable in both brush on and spray can.

Most of the old shellac finishes are not the commonly available white shellac. You need to find a orange or amber shellac.

Amber needs some red added to look original, but it will fill in spots just fine.
