I look forward to the answers on this one, its 
an excellent subject for a book.
I am aware that lost wax is used and that some 
foundries do not tune.

This is fascinating, "All India" bell founding

Subject: [Bell Historians] Historical 
differences between long-standing bell 

I have long wondered about the history some of 
the long-standing bell foundries that still 
exist today.  Marinelli since 1040, John Taylor 
since the mid 1500's, Whitechapel since 1570, 
Petit & Fritsen from 1660 and Eijsbouts from 
1872.  There are probably more.

I wonder how they compare in reputation, size, 
market focus, quality of product, quality of 
service, pricing, how they survived the world 
wars, etc.  I would appreciate anyone's insight 
on these venerable companies.  Thanks.
