Straight sided chimney brick

Found in the Glasgow area, Scotland.

This brick is whole.

The inside is curved whereas the outside edges are straight and angled.

This would have formed a very narrow diameter chimney.

The inside would have been circular while the outside would have been hexagonal, octagonal etc.

Unknown manufacturer.

The brick has 2 holes on one side (They don’t go all the way through). This looks like a 2 pronged lifting tool has been used to move it.

The holes are  2 1/4″ apart.

Below – from left to right clockwise the straight edges measure 3″ x 4″ x 2″ x 3″. The brick is 2 3/4″ thick.
