My Dad thinks it's a teapot but he's not entirely sure. He also doesn't know how old it is or where it was made. Does anyone have any idea what we have here???

Looks like something made in India....not sure if it is a tea pot because it would have a lid. Maybe a pitcher of some kind?

Agree it looks like a piece made in India. I think a teapot or pitcher would also have a handle. The soldering on the spout seems very crudely done so am wondering if it was a later add-on to repurpose a decorative piece.

Google "India Bronze ewer" and click on images. Scan through the different types of ewers until you find one exactly like yours.
It is there, so if you have problems let me know and I'll give you the URL. A ewer is used for wine or water, not tea. No lid is required.

Perhaps it is a repair? From my screen the color of the patina on the spout matches the vessel.
