This brick was made by the staff of the Monier brick factory to commerorate its closure. The factory closed in July 2015. It has strong ties with Crown Lynn - see this link. (this note is written in haste, I really should do more research but I want to get it on record). These bricks are available for sale from Te Toi Uku the Crown Lynn museum. We all should buy one (I think they are only $5). Finn told me that these bricks were the initiative of the staff - the management had no plans for a commemoration of any sort.
