??? Mind my asking, where are you? I thought I was up in the "north".
Anyway, very nice and clear marks. ECT is Elias Christian Thyholdt, born 1806 and master 4.9.1832. He died 25.7.1849.
The Gothic M with (18)44 mark below Trondheim's town crest, the flower, is the guardein (assayer's) mark for Knud S. Möller 1842-1863 also in Trondheim.
The month mark is number 6 for June (not often seen).
13½ is the fineness in lot i.e. 843/1000. CTDB1844 EW is the owner's markings. No idea what it means.
