Historical Notes:

The Mabilon Bell Foundry (Glockengießerei Mabilon) operated in the town of Saarburg from 1770 to 2002, primarily making German-style swinging bells.  Some of these were delivered to the Netherlands via the firm of Hoogen, which was initially located in Amsterdam but moved in 1934 to Duivendrecht.
