Chinese pretty dragon vase

My dad bought this little vase in Chine in the mid 50´s.
It has no mark on the bottom and I think the colour is very pretty. Is it older than the 50´s, man made or? Thanks for any help! I can see on the photo that it´s a bit dusty!

Thanks Peter for your reply. I have only one more photo of the bottom of the vase. I have actually been to an auction company today and the vase is still there. On firsthand look they reckon it´s possible about a 100 years old and not a fake, inside the neck the glase goes down a bit then it´s a brownishred colour. At the widest part of the vase (the top bit) there´s like a fine spiderweb pattern like the glaze been cracked. My brother used to play with the vase when we where kids and it´s amazing that it´s in perfect condition!
