An interesting article concerning FZ's school years:

Better picture of FZ signature. Do the lines represent a musical staff?

Great find!
I think they're the horizontal lines from F and Z.

I agree they are definitely part of the F and Z, but maybe the lines serve a dual purpose. Even where the F and Z intersect this looks very much like a treble clef. This could all be a bit of a stretch, but a very interesting signature either way. I wonder if there are any other signatures from FZ's youth that are similar to this.
