Space-Age Looking Espresso Pot

This is one of the strangest espresso pots I've ever seen. Click Title (above) to see the pot.

For sale is a vintage Italian stainless espresso pot with internal filter, a total of three pieces. The pot measures 4 1/2" high, and the black plastic handle is about 3 3/4" long. There is a black plastic spout on top that is about 1 1/2" long and a long, curved aluminum steam/drain spout that is about 8" long. The circumference of the pot across the bottom is 4" and across the top is 3 1/2".

On the bottom of the pot it is stamped "INOX 18/10" and "Made in Italy" with the letters "G G" in a box in the middle. Everything appears to be in good shape, but there is a little tape residue on top of the pot from a label that you can probably get off with a good scrubbing.
