  1. your brick was made by the Laclede-Christy Clay Products Co. The Company started as the Laclede fire brick co in Cheltenham (St.Louis)MO in 1865. It became the Laclede-Christy company in 1928. It went out of business in the 1970's. There is no way to tell how old your brick is as that brand name was uesd for many years.

  13. My husband and I purchased a little white church in a small town in Southwest Indiana which was built in 1923. The fireplace box in the 'office" is lined with Laclede fire bricks.
    After reading the info on this page, it appears these bricks were made before the company became Laclede-King in 1928.
    As trivial as it may seem, it's fun to know a bit of history about the bricks housed within our home!

  17. I found a very old "LACLEDE KING" brick in our farm somewhere in the Northern Mindanao island measuring 22 x 11.5 x 6.5 cm . I wonder how it got here. Did the American soldiers used it to build their bunkers during the war?
