"Old Bricks - history at your feet"

Northern Ireland


Musgrave & Co, Belfast





Musgrave & Co. Belfast primarily made stoves of all sizes for the home or larger buildings, heating apparatus, stable fittings & high-class ironwork. These fireclay bricks were made to line their stoves. Found on the web a reference referring to an advice note for the company to supply Thomas Daws of Robertsbridge with pipework, bricks & fireclay for a stove in November 1898.  Info & Photographed at Bursledon Brick Museum by Martyn Fretwell.
