Oil or acrylic on wood?

Hi, I have some wooden hand made Christmas ornaments from Germany that are at least 30 yrs old. The paint on some of them is starting to peel or flake off and I wanted to repair at least the ones that have most damage. Can you tell me what kind of paint is used for something like this? Oil or acrylic? And is varnish used? Thanks!
