A 1986 hard to find and highly collectable teapot by Carsten Joergensen (Denmark) for Bodum (Switzerland). It's known as the 'teaball' teapot. 
High quality designer item with distinctive semi circular polished steel body and triangular spout, resting on three tripod legs (with subtle brass coloured ball ends). The black wooden semi circular handle (probably formed black ash) has inner brass fittings. The handle folds flat. Triangular circular lid with silver coloured knob. The brass trimmings on the feet are very subtle and look silvery, the overall appearance is bright reflective silver with the contrasting black handle. Large removable semi circular tea strainer/filter or loose tea holder/infuser - the alternative version without the Bodum branding. There are subtle variations of this 1980s design - some have black trim, more obvious brass and a branded inner infuser.
Lightly used condition, with great reflective quality stainless steel/inox. There's slight water marks under the inner handle fixings, see pics. And the alternative design of filter has a small split at the top. Hardly any surface marks, no dinks, and the handle is great with no wear. A nice example, more for display than for use. 
The half sphere is 18cm wide. Overall 22 x 16 x 18cm with the handle folded flat.

Danish designer, Carsten Joergensen, developed this 'Teaball' teapot in around 1986 for the Danish homewares company, Bodum (who are now based in Switzerland). Made from a stainless steel body on tripod legs, the teapot retains heat without scalding the table surface. The clever and elegant simplicity of this design and its affordability embody the Bodum principle that 'good design doesn't have to be expensive'. Teapot, 'Teaball', stainless steel / brass / wood, designed by Carsten Jorgensen, made by Bodum, Switzerland, c.1986
