Unidentified brick-pips and squares

Found by Eddie McLean in the Glasgow area.

Unidentified maker but highly likely to be of Scottish origins.

It is enamelled in white to one side.

It is stamped with a circular mark and an unknown number of raised pips or pellets – at least 7 and probably 10.

The reverse side has a double square design.

These marks are similar to the marks on two other known white clay and enamelled building bricks.


Below – Believed to be a product of Robert Brown & Son, Ferguslie Fireclay Works and Caledonian Brick and Tile Works, Paisley. 6 +1 pips.

Below – Shawsrigg Fireclay and Enamelling Company, Larkhall,  Glasgow.

Below – This was found by David Porte on the Ayrshire coast. There are 8 + 1 pips or pellets within this circle. It is uncertain whether these are raised or incised due to the water wear. No makers name is marked.
