The brick is recycled from existing walls built in 1947 that were carefully dismantled as a matter of course during remodeling, then reused in these "new" walls. Thus, I would not be aware of the original manufacturer or current availability. They are similar, though,to a full range, wire cut, "pine hall" brick made in N.Carolina. We mixed a few new ones in order to have enough and it is almost impossible to tell them apart from original. The are slightly smaller though. The mortar we used was type N "straw" color by Flamingo mixed with standard washed yellow masons sand 3-to-1. Hope that helps!
