How can I determine the top finish on my recently purchased table?

Answered

I bought a dining room table used. The owner told me the table had been refinished but I failed to ask what the top coat was. It is glossy but doesn't appear to be wax on wood. After three holiday dinners with children it has smudges and a few other little flaws. How can I figure out what the top coat is so I will know how to clean it?
