I think it is charming - I might keep it around the house for flowers. I was looking into the company a little bit, but was unable to find a definitive answer as to when it was made. While I was looking, however, I found this!
I really love little animal knick knacks... I especially love this little green Erphila elephant:

Apparently, Erphila company imported a lot of inexpensive and whimsical figural porcelain and pottery from Czechoslovakia and elsewhere in Europe during the first half of the 1900's. I'll be on the lookout for more!
