The picture at:

Clearly shows two bells on cast iron arched headstocks - the larger bell 
being fitted with a stay and slider. It states that the picture shows the largest 
of three bells supplied to Newport, Rhode Island. It does not say if all three 
bells were hung in the same way - if they were, and still are - these must be 
taken as the heaviest three, slow swinging or not.

An hour of web searching has found nothing - apart from a pub called the 
Three Bells Inn!
