Could you help identify vase?

I would really appreciate any help you may give me on this vase I picked up at a local thrift store along with 3 antique early 1900's Porcelain Chinese Ginger Jars with lids. There are no markings on this vase. It is11 7/8" tall, 5 1/2" wide in the middle, 3 13/16" wide at the mouth, and 3 5/8" wide at the base. The piece was molded as you can feel it a little on both sides and see part of it raised on outside of neck under glaze. The birds on are both sides as well as the blue markings on both sides. Many imperfections especially on the inside of the neck in the form of raised places in the porcelain. The vase has a high gloss and is in really good shape. I think it may be from the early 1900's but could use another opinion from an expert.
