Received the larger images.
The decoration style looks similar to end of Qing or early republic styles, but the bottom and mouth look too new.
So, I guess vintage, perhaps second or third quarter of the 20th century.

Hi,
This vase depicts dragon and phoenix, but no fighting going on...
Nice vase, but from these pictures it is impossible to recognize details or age signs.

I would suggest you upload larger pictures to Photobucket or elsewhere and make the link available for viewing.
