I think you mean Franciscan. Please do add photos of the pattern and the marks on the back. You can do this by using the paper clip icon or the ADD FILES button. These features work best on a desktop computer.

Hope this helps..I thought they were a pair. Now I am not sure due to bottom markings

The gravy boat is the Franciscan El Patio pattern in Coral (glossy version) made from 1942 to 1950. The gravy boat has a value of $35.00.

The teapot is made by Sadler of England in the 1940's in a similar coral pink color that does seem to match your gravy boat. The teapot has a value of $20.00.
