This brick was found in St Petersburg, Russia and a photograph was kindly forwarded by Vladimir Smirnov.
It may be stamped Christie and Son.
The manufacturer is unknown but it is likely to be British and even more likely to be Scottish.
Possibly manufactured by Christie & Son, Brick and tile makers, Shore Road, Stirling or at their Blackgrange Brick and Tile Works at Cambus near Alloa. (Note – SBH – It is not certain but it is believed at this time that Christie & Son owned both the Shore and the Blackgrange Works)
