Last question first. It's highly unlikely the piece was bare metal. What you choose to do with it after you clean it up is up to you. Any good paint and varnish remover should do the trick, but with four layers, it's going to take awhile. I suggest a semi liquid like Strypeeze by Savogran - it clings to vertical surfaces and makes stripping easier. Because it is a paste type, it is slower than pure liquids, but it's much easier to handle. Naval Jelly (available at most hardware stores) can be used to remove any rust.
