Found at the Glengarmock Iron Works, Beith

This example is broken but I am 99% certain the mark is Spinella,

  • 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.
 I am going with a leap of faith here and call this a JG Stein brick. The location is good and I have found reference to the company selling Spinella MCA  bricks – Spinella being part of part of Chrome  – Magnesite brand bricks….see example products on 1977 – 1979 sales invoices.
Unless evidence comes to light to suggest otherwise then I am going to go with this deduction!
