Your vase appears to be a contemporary Chinese product with images of the 'Money Toad' around the mouth, and lion masks alternating with a lucky coin design embossed at the sides. The base has an apocryphal mark of 'Great Ming Dynasty Xuande Reign (Da Ming Xuande - 大明宣德), while the coin designs on the sides have four characters reading 'Zhao cai, tong bao' (招財 通寶 ), 'May you have success and riches', 'Coin of the realm'.
Here are three links to vases on eBay of what looks to be identical form and decoration, though apparently a bit larger than yours.
