Chiming Profiles

Does anyone know when Taylor's started casting the front ends of chimes to
lighter profiles than they would rings? Certainly in Victorian times and
into the true-harmonic era no distinction was made, but they began casting
lighter front ends at some point, I think, in the 1910s-20s. Obviously, this
gave them an advantage when it came to quoting - they could quote cheaper.
Gilletts were not slow to catch on and do the same, but the exact dates of
events remain elusive...

Anyone know?
