Zeh, Scherzer & Co.’ (Z. S. & C) was founded in 1880. They produced coffee and tea sets, normal household items and tableware as well as decoration porcelain. Items made by the company also caught the eye of the Geo. Borgfeldt & Co. company and during January 1907 and May 1908 ‘Zeh, Scherzer & Co.’ produced a series of items exclusively for that company from New York. Their products were of high qality and beautiful to look at and even today remain a valuable addition to any collection. The company was changed into an limited company on October 7th 1910. They expanded their wares and had a very successful run but like many German, as well as other companies, they faced hard competition for lesser quality imports. They even reduced their name to Scherzer & Co. or simply Scherzer 1880, to make it easier to pronounce in other countries, but by the middle of the 1980’s, their sales were declining. In 1991 the majority of shares were taken over by the Allerthal A.G. investment company who saw the German porcelain market in a decline and eventually stopped production in 1992.
