You should be able to match the color and finish by using a padding lacquer or shellac and building it up to the same thickness as the oringinal finish over the patch. You can add color as you do this with powder or liquid pigments to the color match spot on. Once you are satisified with the color and finish build rub it out to the same sheen as the rest of the leaf.
