Actually, the Revere bell pictured has 11 single bead lines, grouped 2-2-2-3-2. The first bell pictured is a Vanduzen, and it has 6 – a mixture of singles and triples. Post-1890 Henry Stuckstede bells have only a group of 3 singles below the waist plus 1 or 2 above the shoulder. Bells by G.W.Coffin, Petit & Fritsen and Eijsbouts, with their ornamental shoulder bands, have yet other numbers. In summary, every bell founder had his own idea about how to decorate a bell, leading to a variety of patterns of bead lines, though the limited number of possibilities also means that there are some commonalities. Revere, for instance, learned from English bellfounders and followed the most common English pattern.
