In this old dump area i ran across this highly embossed brick from the Staten Island terra-cotta lumber co. Located in Woodbridge NJ. I found this brick on a number of brick collectors web pages. Don't know how common or value. Apparently, Woodbridge had World famous natural clay for making terra-cotta tile. Not too coarse, not too fine. Woodbridge is the oldest township in the state of New Jersey. It was settled in the fall of 1664.

So that's Debossing right? Embossing being proud of the surface? I've seen plenty of optical illusions before and haven't been to an eye Dr. in a while. Nice brick either way

You're right, it is debossing. Wasn't thinking when I posted earlier.

The problem I see with this post is I only see ONE brick... just sayin'. I wouldn't mind having one of these too.
