Reamalgamation can cure both problems on furniture that is lacquered or shellacked. If the deep scratch goes through the finish to the wood, and has caused some of the finish material to flake away, you might apply a thin coat of new finish material to the scratch. Use an artist's brush and carefully place the clear lacquer or shellac in the scratch without getting any on the surrounding surface. Allow this to dry. Then reamalgamate. The new material will serve as a filler during the rea-malagamation process, and reamalgamation will cause the colored finish material to flow over it and blend in w ith the rest of the surface.
