FENTON vs. DUNCAN Cornucopia Hand Vases

"Daisy and button" hand vases are often referred to as Fenton, but only the three on the left (in the pictures above) were made by Fenton in the 1930's. The two on the right were made by George Duncan and Sons in the 1880's & 1890's. How does one tell the difference? Fenton cornucopia vases have "buttons" i.e. small round designs between the geometric "daisies". Duncan vases do not.
