I know I know it shoud be tea-bowl according to the British Museum Object Name Thesaurus. However, as a business we have to cope with two things. Firstly how is this data interpreted by a computer and secondly the variations in spelling between dictionaries and regions. For example in the chambers dictionary it is teacup, all one word.
In the O and E it is tea-cup. Online teacup is used more frequently for searches than tea-cup (eight percent of searches) or tea cup. Thus we use all three and fully accept the flak from those with pedantic fuelled principles, or is that fueled for our American cousins? I have been involved in the antiques business since 1971. My career took a leap forward when I joined Bonhams in 1976.
Some five years later I became head of the Decorative Arts department.
