Sterreberg Courtrai SS Made in Belgium.

The Pottelberg / Sterrenberg tiles are produced in the Belgian city of Courtrai. This roof tile works had a wide range of Tuile du Nord, Flemish and Roman S tiles.

14/12/1933 – Fife Free Press – A letter from Messrs Thomas Menzies & Co builders, referred to the objection to Courtrai roofing tiles being specified for housing schemes owing to their being of foreign manufacture and pointed out that in their manufacture large quantities of British Coal are used and also Scottish fire bricks and as the use of these tiles has been instrumental in reducing housing costs in this country, suggesting that the tiles be specified in future housing contracts. The Town Clerk was instructed to send a copy of this letter to the Department of Health and ask them for their observations.
