Various marked bricks believed to be the product of Buicks, Hilton Fire Clay Works, Alloa

Found in woodland on the site of the old Hilton Fire Clay Works, Alloa.

They are not marked Buick or Hilton but they were found on site and they were found among Buick white glazed bricks.

Their appearance appears very similar to the Buicks.

I have at this time no reason to believe they were made elsewhere other than the Hilton works.

The bricks are all stamped on an end. They have white glazed faces and all sides and ends are strangely angled. Very Rhomboid in appearance.

They are possibly bricks from a flat arch assembly. The letters and numbers may be the code in relation as to where the brick should be positioned in the arch and around the central keystone.

These bricks are marked 5C, 5 1, 4E, 3, 3 A, 3 C, 3 D, 2 H, 2 1, 1^, 1 D, 1 I,
