From Fred R.,The Wellsville Savage is a firebrick produced by the Wellsville Firebrick Co. of Wellsville, MO. ref: Graves' Brickbrands of the United States.
I have 3 Wellsville Savage bricks and from what I can find out they were mabe in Wells ville, Mo. but what is the significence of yhe word Savage on the brick?
Just found a Wellsville Savage brick cleaning up an old historical brine and oil spill in SE OKla. I know the well was drilled in 1929 and by the looks of the brick it has been there every since. It was in the area of the old original mud pit when the well was drilled.
I own a 1929 home in Tulsa, OK and one of the bricks inside the fireplace is turned to show the "Wellsville Savage" name. Nice to know they were produced in Wellsville, MO - thanks!
