Found in Fife.

I believe this was manufactured by Charles Bramall who owned the Caledonian Brickworks, Larkhall c.1904 to his death 1921 – this site was previously known as the Larkhall Brickfields and by 1938 it was known as Birkenshaw Brickworks.

Charles Bramall Ltd, a silica brick manufacturer also owned a brickworks in Sheffield manufacturing silica bricks so there is a chance it was manufactured there.

This brick looks to be of a high silica content.

It is stamped on the stretcher side.

Below – Could this be a product of the Larkhall Silica & Coal Company Ltd, particularly if Charles Bramall was involved in the company.

Below – 06/12/1921 – Sheffield Daily Telegraph – Mr Charles Bramall, owner of the Caledonian Brickworks in Larkhall.
