Your Chinese teapot and tray may be hand-colored since otherwise, some of the floral decoration outlining looks like it may be transfer-printed in black. Possibly ornamented in Hong Kong circa the mid-to-early 3rd quarter of the 20th century. The base marking reads down and across western-style from the left as 'Made in China' (Zhong guo zhi zao - 中國制造).

Best regards,
