The town mark appears to be that of Danzig (today Gdansk in Poland). I don't have sources to identify the maker's mark but maybe someone with more knowledge about German silver can help you. I don't think they are Hanau pseudo hallmarks as there are only two marks; usually there would be more. But without seeing the whole item it's not possible to say for sure.

Hello Sasropakis
Many thanks for information.
Actually I found other posts where I could see the Danzig hallmark for comparison.
Too bad that many are now without images.
Sincerely
Amena

If it is not a fake, then it is Christian Bockhorn (Chihak no.369), Master 1671, but he lost his job 1684 (his alloy was to low)

It is a tankard that will be auctioned
From the photos it looks beautiful, but I don't have the chance to see it with my own eyes.
Thank you all for your help.
