You cannot.  The privilege is DROP ANY TABLE.  Which would give privilege to all tables in all schemas.

What you can do is create a procedure in SCHEMA1 that would do the drop and then grant execute privilege on that procedure to SCHEMA2.  Do not allow the table name to be passed in, it would have to be hard coded in the procedure, otherwise it opens it up to dropping anything and in theory it could allow SCHEMA2 to drop tables owned by others if SCHEMA1 has privileges to drop them.  It would also open it up to SQL injection.

Just because I don't think so doesn't mean there isn't.

What I've seen done in the past is:
Create a procedure in schema1 that drops the table then grant execute on that procedure to schema2.

Maybe some other Experts know of a way.
not directly

you could grant "drop any table" and then create a ddl trigger to block attempts that are for the wrong schema.

or you could create a procedure within the target schema (or owned by another user that has "drop any table")
and have that procedure do the drop within the target schema
then grant access to that procedure
