Looking at the glossy look in the photos it was either oil or shellac. Either way, doing anymore would be a bad idea. My suggestion is still leave it alone. Your climate controlled home is the simplest and best thing for it.

I appreciate your viewpoint, but the perception of the shell having a glossy exterior is more of a byproduct of the photography for when viewing in person it doesnt come off that way. But yes there is evidence of something that was sprayed and ran down the sides in drips. Thanks for the comments.
