Use hot water
Try using hot water to remove the lacquer from large objects.
Use a scouring pad
Use a scouring pad to remove any remaining lacquer if the object is pure brass.
Apply a coating of acetone
Apply acetone to the object with a partially wetted cotton ball and then rinse it off with hot water, if hot water alone does not completely remove the lacquer.
Use denatured alcohol
Pour denatured alcohol on a cloth and rub it on the surface of large brass objects until the lacquer peels away, as an alternative.
Re-coat the object
Re-coat the object with lacquer or leave it unfinished so it can acquire a patina.
