Find a Friedrich Christopher Zwanzig (1822-1889) in Schleswig, as well as his son Friedrich Christoph Zwanzig (b.1857)...

(Thank you Theo)

Yes, I would also say F.G Zwanzig

funny I've tried to google his name , with no results

must be the older F.G Zwanzig (No ½moon & crown , as we normally see with German silver)

Actually Schlesvig was Danish until 1864 !
Old danish silver (Province silver) does sometimes only have a name (of the silversmith) marked

Well so far no luck in finding out more.
I've not managed to look up F.C Zwanzig here in Denmark (Schleswig - before 1864, when we lost it to Germany)
But have been able to get confirmed from a 3.party that It's correct that there was a Friedrich Christopher Zwanzig (1822-1889) in Schleswig, as well as his son Friedrich Christoph Zwanzig (b.1857) , Thanks to Dragonflywink !
Just would had been great to actually see his name/hallmarks in a book.
