Claynows Stubal

Found on the old James Dougall site at Bonnyside.

Clayknowes Brickworks, Greenhill, Bonnybridge.

This version has letters with serifs.

I wonder why they makers dropped the ‘K’ and the ‘E’ when stamping the bricks?

The stamp maybe STUBAL or SETUBAL. The first and or second letters are not clear.

Stubal is a town in Serbia and Setubal is a city in Portugal. If it is one of these places then it appears Clayknowes Brickworks were manufacturing firebricks for export and stamping the destination  or company alongside their own name.
