3 X Fire backs – possibly manufactured by The Carron Co, Falkirk – I – 10 – S – I – 7 – Rd

0 186

The following 3 examples of  clay fired fire backs were found in the woodland surrounding the Carron Ironworks, Falkirk.

The have no identifiable stamp but I believe they will have been manufactured by The Carron Co for their extensive range of stoves, cookers and ranges.

I will record them as a Carron product until evidence suggests otherwise.

All 3 examples are obviously ‘related’ and manufactured by the same maker.

This is a ‘diamond mark’ – The diamond mark, found on the item itself, can help you to work out when it may have been manufactured and what material class it belongs to.

Following the codes on the above link, this mark suggests that the product was registered on 10 July 1875 although the month code at extreme bottom looks more like a ‘1’ or an ‘L’ than an ‘I’.

The very top symbol refers to the ‘material class’ and the nearest match on the link is a ‘I’ but this refers to metal whereas this product is clay / ceramic which has the code ‘IV’

7 items were included in this registration.

From top clockwise to middle it appears to say – I – 10 – S – I  – 7 – Rd.
