Photo of the belfry of the monastery (Звонница в Спасо-Евфимиевом монастыре в Суздале); at least 11 bells are visible.

The Russian Wikipedia article about the monastery opens with a photo of the Spaso-Preobrazhensky Cathedral and the bell structure.

A separate article about the bell structure itself has this 2015 photo.  But the description is misleading, as it equates poods with kilograms.

The Wikimedia Commons category for this bell structure has many photos, including one of the bell ringer at work.  14 bells can be definitively located in the tripartite belfry.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of unidentified bellfoundries, in this region and in the world.
