R & C trough

Found by Ian Suddaby at Kirkcudbright, Galloway.

This mark is stamped on an animal feed trough and there may also be an additional ‘Y’ stamped to the right of the main mark.

The stamp is possibly R & Coy (Company).

I have only ever found R & C bricks at the Hurll Gartliston or Garnqueen works in Glenboig and as such I am, until proven otherwise, happy to identify Hurll as the maker of these.

I do believe this is yet another example of a Scottish brick manufacturer making bricks for a customer and adding the customer’s name to the product and I believe it stands for Reichmann and Co.  This company were iron merchants and Alexander Hurll was co-owner of the company.

Peter and Mark Hurll, Gartliston and Garnqueen Works, Glenboig.

Building bricks at Garscadden Works, Drumchapel.
