I'm restoring the John O. Carr house in Glenview Illinois and my tuckpointing contractor needs 500+ bricks. We are rebuilding a terrace wall that has succumb to the elements. Thankfully the masonry of the home itself has held up well. I'm hoping to get some suggestions for sourcing these bricks. I'm looking for an exact match, but I'd prefer not to have them custom manufactured.

you might want to contact Lynn Pachner at Illinois Brick Co. 708 310-9755 or LPACHNER@ILLINOISBRICK.COM. Considering the red color, I would think there are a number of standard bricks that could closely match.
