Please help with history age story behind this piece and is it of any value

Can you please help me identify this piece

Obviously it’s an electroplated coffee pot made by International Silver and probably one of a number made for Saint Joseph College. Patent 1637853 was issued in 1927 and was for the hollow handle. So it must have been made at some time after that date.

As it is electroplated it has no intrinsic value due to silver content. It will clearly have some decorative or utility value which you should be able to find by looking at Ebay’s sold listings for electroplated coffee pots.
