    With the leather on a Crown you use steam from a kettle. Don't scrape it off. The glue they used is horse hide glue.

    Hide glues, whether from wabbits or other critters is prepared, in part, by melting it, and it's applied hot. Applying heat will reverse the process. The trick is how much heat to apply, which would be the minimum needed to soften the glue. Moisture will help too, but too much of either would be a bad thing, moisture probably being the worst of the two, for the wood anyway.
    Here's a link for modern hide glue,
