Max Borho established a second steinzeug factory, this time in Freising, with a new partner, Adam Schön. In 1868 Schön had purchased house #62 in the Wörth district, from two couples, Corbian and Cresentia Schlemmer and their daughter Anna and her husband Michael Wimmer. Schön paid 6,300 Gulden, or about 12,600 Marks for house and property. By January 1, 1876 it had been converted into a 7,500 sq. ft. factory. The company was called "Schön and Borho". Freising is about 30km NNE of Munich, still in an area devoid of the proper clay. The factory produced Borho designed "altdeutche" (Old German) style wares as well as contemporary (1876), Westerwald style, blue, manganese, and grey stoneware. Beer services (sets), punch bowls, and wall plaques were produced, as were humidors, ashtrays, biscuit jars, candlesticks and character steins. The character steins had narrow bodies, small bases, and a small diameter lid that allowed only for the neck and head. Later lids, on the robust bodies, were wider and included the shoulders. The missing thumblift is typical of this factory's character steins prior to its becoming HR. After only a few months Max Borho evidently sold his interest in the factory to Albert Hauber.

Type 1

Type 2

The large "type 1," and "type 2" capacity marks just above were used interchangeably, and are found on steins manufactured between 1876 and 1878. Rather than two separate types, they should be considered two varieties of a single type. The large, "type 2" capacity mark is far more common and soon after Albert Hauber became the sole owner, it became the only capacity mark used, and continued in use until 1882. The common links are the large "L" without a serif at the top, a horizontal fraction line, and the capacity line itself with one end angled up and the other down, and it doesn't matter which end goes which way.

This is the large font model number that measures 10mm in height. It was used only during the 1876 Schön-Borho production period. As I pointed out in the Introduction, Max Borho had a penchant for taking stamps, roll stamps amd molds with him when he moved on. I believe he took these stamps with him when he departed and the factory was left without a stamp set for a short time in which they hand inscribed the model numbers until they were able to obtain a new set.



Note the handles on these steins, they were used ONLY during the 1876-1878 production periods. The only differences we find in the steins from these two periods is the size of the model number.
