This is a extremely rare teapot I have been told and is from the Osborne Hotel that was located in Auburn New York. The Osborne Hotel was located in the downtown area of Auburn and was a 100-room hotel that was operated (in 1929) by Lynn G. Swift.
This teapot would have been used in the hotel's dining room for formal table settings along with the hotel's china.
It is not a souvenir; this is the heavyweight type Railroad, Steamship, and Lunch Counter / Restaurant type silver plate. A wonderful addition to your Hotel, Creamer / Pitcher / Tea Pot, or Auburn New York collection and it is ready to display.
