Regarding Naylor Vickers flanges: no, they do not have only a thick central stem. Each flange has four webs. The small, usually chiming bells, however, have peg argents (and consequently cast-in staples, unlike the flange-headed bells.

  NV buttons/flanges have only a central (thick) stem.

  Buoy bells by whoever have the same.

  However Taylors usual type for ringing bells (trebles of higher number rings are of a flange fitting on (usually) three pillars. (see Elphick, Craft of the Bellfounder, p.43).
