Found by Ian Suddaby at the Manuel Works, Whitecross.

This example is not in my possession.

RVHD 319 55 or possibly RVHO

Unidentified manufacturer but is likely to have been made on-site at the Manuel Works.

  • Stein, Castlecary Fireclay Works, Castlecary, Stirlingshire.
  • Stein, Manuel Firebrick and Refractory Works, Whitecross, Stirlingshire.
  • Stein & Co, Anchor Brickworks, Denny, Stirlingshire.
  • Milnquarter Fireclay & Gannister Works, Bonnybridge, Stirlingshire

It has been suggested that the 55 represents a ‘Sillmax 55’ brick. The 319 is the type of code number used in the hot blast stoves. RV may represent Ravenscraig Steelworks but it is normally RC and HD is also code for Sill 55 (or HO could represent Hoogoven’s design of Hot blast stoves).
