It was commom in the US in the 30-40s it is I believe a wash of
thinned pigment, Milk Paint is a name, its nearly impossible to remove
when restoring old Milk Painted wood. A real paint store should be
able to direct you Benjamin Moore stores, probably have a product. But
I would think a thinned down stain would do fine, test what you want
on scrap wood.
