Italian term or phrase: oliati spazzolati decapati
This is from a list of woods and finishes available for parquet flooring, so there's not a lot more context. The above, "oliati spazzolati decapati," is simply the heading of a list.

I'm willing to bet the wood isn't really "pickled," but I'm having a hard time guessing what this would be in English. Thanks!
