Electroplate Fenton? 1800's?

I am pretty sure this is an electroplated Fenton piece from the 1800โ€™s. Not sure if it is a coffee pot or a tea pot? There is obvious tarnishing, although I have not been able to find any copper hidden underneath stressed areas or in seams. Just need some clarity on this. Thanks! :slight_smile:

Welcome to the forum. Yes, this is an electroplated Fenton Brothers teapot. From its style I would suggest it dates from the 20th century rather than the 19th. It would have been part of a mass-production run for commercial customers such as hotels or other slightly upmarket mass caterers. I donโ€™t know anything about Lincoln Hall; my best suggestion is that it may have been university accommodation.
