Q: I have enclosed a picture of a porcelain vase that belonged to my grandmother. It was hand-painted by a friend. The height is 13 inches and is marked "T & V -- Limoges -- France -- 1917." I am interested in your appraisal.A: Your vase was made in Limoges, France, for Tressemanes & Vogt in the early 1900s. Limoges was a large exporter of porcelain, and the United States was one of their best customers. Also, blanks were shipped to the United States and decorated by amateurs. China painting was a favorite pastime for ladies of leisure in the early 1900s.

Folks in the Butchers Hill/Patterson Park/Fells Prospect area are about to have another new neighbor to welcome: the area's newest restaurant, Salt. Owner-chef Jason Ambrose describes the place as a "neo-American tavern." "It's not a traditional tavern because there's so much natural light there, and [a lot of what] I do is a play on tavern food," Ambrose says. Let's start with the location: the corner of Pratt Street and Collington Avenue, in a space that housed a bar called Fran's. Ambrose says he's had the building for a year and a half, and gutted it to make way for his eatery.

When we arrived, every table was taken. Within half an hour, we were almost the only customers left in Limoges Gourmet Bistro. More than anything else, that to me illustrated the hurdles this new bistro faces. This is the restaurant formerly known as Tampico, which opened less than two years ago. It was a handsome Mexican grill; and I thought it would make it because the place was nice enough to appeal to theater and concert goers, but reasonably priced enough to attract the neighborhood crowd when the Meyerhoff and the Lyric were dark.
