Vintage Pyrex Teapot with Tea Ball Infuser

I'm getting ready for another visit with my family, and thought I should unpack some of the treasures I brought home from my last visit before I go. I had completely forgotten about this old Pyrex teapot I found in my mom's basement! It was my great-grandmother's, and I haven't been able to find another one like it. I did find an image from a Pyrex brochure printed in 1931 that shows this style, but with a glass top. I believe the pot is style 16, a 6-cup teapot, but I haven't been able to find any information on the metal top with infuser. The top fits this pot perfectly, so I think it must have been made for this pot, and not a generic top. I'm hoping that some of you Pyrex lovers can help me with its history and value, maybe the top was part of a special promotion?
