Well, it is definitely Gorham electroplate. The other marks are a bit confusing. The star in a circle is the date letter for 1888. The shovel is the date letter for 1923! If they are in fact Gorham date letters, there should be one or the other, not both.

Based on the style of the Gorham mark, though, with the GM Co. over the anchor, we can safely place your teapot in the 1920's, with the shovel mark for 1923 being the one to believe.
