How do I treat old rocking dog?


Hi - I hope you good people can help and this is the right place to ask!!

I have just purchased an antique rocking dog (yes - you did read that right!!) I absolutely love it but feel it hasn't been looked after over the years, there is some cracking and the wood is quite dull.

What would be the best thing (oil? wax?) to use on it to feed the wood and make sure the cracks don't get worse (I am not worried about the current ones as they just add character)

It is big (about 20kg) and solid wood but not sure what sort of wood.

Any help and advice gratefully received.x
