This example is not in my possession.

Gartcraig Fire Clay Works, By Millerston, Glasgow.

Ian states – This is a Bellied Chimney Pot. Made at Millerston, Glasgow by the Gartcraig Fire Clay Co., probably in the late 19th century. The maker’s mark looks like it was flat and applying it to a curved surface has meant the two Gs aren’t clear. There’s no doubt what it says though.

The 2 was added separately and it’s 2 feet tall. The width tapers from 12 inches at the base, to 8 inches at the top.
