Company replacement coins

Farge - a fishing village northwest of Bremen on the Weser. The commune belonged to the Kingdom of Hanover.
In 1853, after a significant increase in customs duties on porcelain products imported from England, a shipowner from Bremen, Johannes Fritz, and two English merchants, Boyes and Sowerbutts from Bremen, established a porcelain tableware factory in Farge.
The factory was named Witteburg in memory of the destruction of the castle in Witteburg in 1227, which belonged to the Archbishop of Bremen, Gerhard II.
In addition to household porcelain, significant quantities of good quality ceramic tiles were produced. Around 1900, the factory already employed 470 workers.
Employees received porcelain tokens, which were used to settle accounts for food items within the so-called Consum Verein association. These tokens were settled once a year when bonuses were paid from profit.
In 1894, the spelling of the Association changed from CONSUM - VEREIN FARGE to KONSUM VEREIN FARGE, so the coins must have been created around 1890
