Magnet pictures a c. 1910 advertisement for Jap-A-Lac varnish, a product made by the Glidden Varnish Company of Cleveland, Ohio.  Lacquer is a protective liquid coating made of shellac dissolved in alcohol.  Upon application the alcohol dries and leaves a hard coating behind. The product name Jap-A-Lac no doubt derived from the manufacturer's hoped for association with popular Japanese lacquerware dating back 10,000 years.
